Bimetallic nanoparticles have been recently used for heterogeneous and electrochemical catalysts. Carbon
nanotubes are promising support for the catalysts because of their excellent chemical stability, large surface area and good
thermal and electrical conductivities. This work briefly summarizes recent results published in literature and patents for
the synthesis and applications of carbon nanotube-supported PtRu bimetallic catalysts.
Keywords: Carbon nanotubes, bimetallic catalyst, fuel cells, heterogeneous catalysis, patent, PtRu nanoparticles, PtRu supported
