Electro Oxidation of Methanol at Pt/Au/Sn Triplet Electrode


Objectives: To find a novel and a cheap anode for direct methanol fuel cell that resists the poisoning by carbon monoxide produced inside the cell. Methods/Statistical Analysis: We prepare triplet electrode by using electrodeposition technique in nano-scale to improve the overall electro-catalytic properties of anode towards electrochemical oxidation of methanol. Findings: The prepared nano-anode is better than the traditional electrode Pt/Au because the triplet anode Pt/Au/Sn give higher current density in low over potential. Application/Improvements: There exist many applications of this triplet nano-anode in portable devices, cars, vehicles, airplanes and space shuttles.
