To prevent sintering of carbon supported metal nanoparticles during high temperature annealing in reductive conditions, Pt-Sn nanoparticles were coated with MgO. The agglomeration of Pt-Sn particles upon thermal annealing was significantly inhibited with a MgO shell. The presence of the oxide shell gave rise to a more homogeneous microstructure and a better electrochemical stability. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
