A novel PtCo nanoflake-nanotube architecture was constructed by using a Co metal nanowire array as the sacrificial template through a galvanic replacement reaction. The as-prepared hierarchical structure achieved an effective utilization of Pt and exhibited much better activity and stability for electrocatalytic oxidation of methanol than the commercial Pt/C catalyst.
