The development of one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures for hydrocarbon oxidation reaction has attracted increasing efforts. The unique anisotropic morphology and special surface properties of 1D catalysts endow them with many advantages as compared with conventional 0D nanoparticles in proton exchange membrane fuel cells applications with liquid fuels. In this chapter, we discuss the recent progress in 1D Pt, Pt-based alloy, and non-Pt precious catalysts for this application, with a focus on the understanding of structure-catalytic property relationships in the electrooxidation of methanol, ethanol, and formic acid for potential fuel cell applications.
