Abstract

Multi-functional anode catalysts composed of platinum (Pt) nanoparticles electrodeposited on 2 wt% Pt decorated ceria (Pt:CeO2-x) nanorod supports were shown to enhance the alkaline electrocatalytic oxidation of methanol, ethanol and n-butanol over electrodeposited Pt nanoparticles alone or ones supported with pure ceria nanorods. The Pt:CeO2-x nanorod support was demonstrated to increase the current density of the investigated alkaline electrooxidation of methanol, ethanol and n-butanol by more than 30% over the other two catalysts.
