Co-Cu-ZnO nanowire/tube catalysts for the conversion of syngas to higher alcohols were synthesized using pulse electrodeposition. Pulse schemes were varied in order to obtain different composition and atomic environment of catalysts. Effects of pulse schemes on catalysts’ properties are discussed using techniques such as HR-TEM, ICP, XPS, XRD, and SEM.
