Green one-pot synthesis of bimetallic nanoparticles of Pd and Pt using RNA molecules as the capping/stabilizing agent and ascorbic acid as the reducing agent was described. Bimetallic nanoparticles have been used for hydrogen evolution reactions, which demonstrated improved catalytic performance than pure Pd nanoparticles and Pd/C materials.
