    Abstract: The use of electrospun metal and metal oxide supports allows novel, alternative platinum deposition techniques to be exploited. A paradigm shift from Pt nanoparticles supported on carbon to atomic layers of platinum deposited on metals or metal oxides can be achieved coupling the electrospinning to electrochemical Pt deposition techniques like the galvanostatic displacement of Ni ions with Pt. This novel morphology could push the boundary of Pt exploitation further and vastly increase the stability of the electrodes, therefore the sought after reduction of fabrication costs and increased stability are within the reach of current researches.
