Here, graphene oxide (GO) was synthesized by a modified Hummers’ method and was functionalized with 1,1′-dimethyl-4,4′-bipyridinium dichloride (MV) accompanied by chitosan (CH) to prepare a novel MV-RGO-CH support. Pt/MV-RGO-CH catalyst was prepared by immobilization of the Pt nanoparticles on MV-RGO-CH support. The microstructure and morphology of the prepared catalyst was characterized by transmission electron microscopy and X-ray powder diffraction analysis. The electrocatalytic activity of Pt/MV-RGO-CH catalyst was investigated for methanol electrooxidation through cyclic voltammetry (CV), COads stripping voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) techniques. The effects of some experimental factors for methanol electrooxidation such as methanol concentration, scan rate and temperature were studied at the prepared catalyst. Durability of the catalyst was also investigated. Comparing the catalytic activity of the Pt/MV-RGO-CH nanocatalyst with Pt/CH and Pt/MV-RGO catalysts indicated that Pt/MV-RGO-CH has a very good catalytic activity for methanol electrooxidation.
