Abstract  Nanostructured platinum is prepared by electrochemical deposition from the lamellar lyotropic liquid crystalline phase, composed of the nonionic triblock copolymer EO106PO70EO106 (F127), n-butanol and H2PtCl6 aqueous solution. Observations from the transmission or scanning electron microscopes illustrate that the deposit is of bunchy nanostructure, clustered by nanowires with high aspect ratio. Analysis on energy dispersion spectrum and the electrode potentials suggests the platinum metal nature of the deposit. The results of cyclic voltammetry show a high specific surface area (about 53 m2•g−1) for the deposit. The factors influencing the deposit morphology and the possible deposition mechanism are discussed.
