Engineers at the Univ. of Rochester have created platinum nanowires that could soon lead to the development of commercially viable fuel cells. The 10-nm-dia. by 10-cm-long nanowires are long enough to create the first selfsupporting "web" of pure platinum, which can serve as an electrode in a fuel cell and also increase both the fuel cell's longevity and efficiency.
