Scientists have succeeded in developing precisely controlled alloy nanoparticles ‘multimetallic nanoclusters (MNCs)’ made of three metals: copper, platinum, and gold. They also discovered that MNCs show catalytic activity that is 24 times greater than commercially available carbon-supported platinum catalysts in the oxidization of hydrocarbons using oxygen in the air.
