Highly branched PdP nanosheets (NSs) rich in defects and with a thickness of similar to 3.2 nm were synthesized, for the first time, via a nanoconfined attachment growth mechanism inside assembled lamellar micelles. Owing to the synergistic structural (being a highly branched, ultrathin, and defect-rich material) and compositional (P-alloyed) advantages, the PdP NSs exhibited remarkable electrocatalytic activity (3.2 A mg(Pd)(-1)), a low reaction activation energy (16.0 kJ mol(-1)), good CO anti-poisoning ability, and electrocatalytic stability during the ethanol oxidation reaction (EOR) in alkaline conditions.
