Pt and Pt based alloy nanoclusters in cowpea chlorotic mottle virus
Okuda and coworkers developed the fabrication method of Pt and Pt based alloy nanoclusters in cowpea chlorotic mottle virus (CCMV), together with University of Bristol, UK, and University of Twente, the Netherlands. The size of the nanoclusters is limited to 18 nm by the internal diameter of CCMV capsid. This study introduces a new way to fabricate size-restricted nanoclusters using virus capsid.
