Abstract:

Based on the Phase I research results, we identified that carbon supported Pd-based catalysts, such as PdC and PdRuC, had better electrocatalytic activity toward the ethanol oxidation reaction EOR than Pt-based catalysts. However, the selective C-C bond cleavage in the EOR on the Pd-based catalysts, leading to carbon dioxide, was not a major reaction pathway. During this research period, we aim to study the EOR activity and selectivity on Pt based catalysts with and without PbIV additives, including solution phase Pb2 presented in the electrolytes and solid phase Pb in PtC or PdC or RhC catalysts.
