PtCu nanoparticles were synthesized with different pH and support conditions using radiochemical process. The nanoparticle structures were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction techniques. The nanoparticle structure was relevant to the pH of the precursor solutions. The lattice parameter of PtCu alloy increased in high pH samples, which indicates the critical effect of metal ion adsorption in precursor solution on nanoparticle structure.
