Cover of Advanced Functional Materials with research led by Daniel Morse featured.

ICB-funded research by Daniel E. Morse and co-workers was featured on the cover of the September 25, 2013 issue of Advanced Functional Materials.  They reported a biologically inspired, kinetically controlled, catalytic approach to synthesizing a new family of nanocrystalline platinum-based catalysts. A novel composite of multiwalled carbon nanotubes and carbon black serves as the matrix for the in situ nucleation and growth of the Pt nanocrystals, providing access to new combinations of porosity, mesoscale morphology, conductivity, and electrochemical activity for hydrogen oxidation.
