Abstract

Palladium nanoparticles are being increasingly considered as room-temperature hydrogen sensors and storage materials. Pd nanoparticle arrays have been synthesized using template-assisted electrodeposition. The template based on Al film on a polymeric substrate was characterized by scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study confirmed that the deposited nanoparticles were of metallic Pd. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy investigation revealed that Pd nanoparticles consisted of a large number of nanocrystallites in the size range of 5-10 nm.
