Here we demonstrate that commercial carbon supported Pt nanoparticles react with [AuCl4]− ions at room temperature to produce a highly active Au/Pt/C material with an ultralow coverage of elemental Au on the Pt nanoparticles that exhibits significantly enhanced activity for ethanol oxidation when compared to Pt/C.
