Core-Shell Catalyst Clears CO
A catalyst composed of a 3-nm-diameter ruthenium core coated with a platinum shell just one or two atomic layers thick converts CO to CO2 in the presence of hydrogen more selectively and at more than 50 °C lower than other common catalysts that mediate the same oxidation (Nat. Mat., DOI: 10.1038/nmat2156). Such catalysts could lead to new methods for preparing high-purity hydrogen as required for fuel cells, which are readily damaged by the high levels . . .
