Novel platinum nanobelts were synthesized using a reverse micelle method for the first time. Morphology control over the shape and size of the nanobelts can be achieved simply by changing the precursor concentration or reaction time. The nanobelts show high electrocatalytic activity and tunable surface properties, indicating their potential application in catalyst, sensing and fuel cells.
