Graphical Abstract

Transmission electron micrographs (TEM), the corresponding Pt particle size distribution histograms, and chemical analysis for residual Cl content by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) of selected representative Pt/C fuel cell catalysts.
