Ternary Pd alloys dispersed on high surface-area WC, which did't contain amorphous carbon can be prepared via simple strategies and showed a comparable performance in the MEA of PEMFC to the commercial Pt catalyst. We expected that Pt can be totally replaced by non-Pt based electrocatalysts in PEMFC anode.
