Abstract

Methanol, ethanol and formic acid electrooxidations in acid medium on Pt/C and PtRu/C catalysts were investigated. The catalysts were prepared by a microwave-assisted polyol process. Cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry were employed to provide quantitative and qualitative information on the kinetics of methanol, ethanol and formic acid oxidations. The PtRu/C catalyst showed higher anodic current densities than the Pt/C catalyst and the addition of Ru reduced the poisoning effect.
