Platinum-group-metal quinary RuRhPdIrPt alloy nanoparticles were synthesised with compositions slightly away from equimolar, and their crystal and electronic structures were investigated. Their lattice constant changed linearly with composition, while the d-band centre changed nonlinearly. Their catalytic activities for the hydrogen evolution reaction were not correlated with their d-band centre.
