Abstract

Platinum (Pt) nanoparticles supported on zirconia–carbon black nanocomposites (Zr–C), which annealed at different temperatures, used as Pt/Zr–C electrocatalysts for methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) are prepared and characterized in this study. Transmission electron microscope images and X-ray diffraction analysis showed that the diameters of Pt nanoparticles are around 3–4 nm. Electrocatalytic MOR performances of these Pt/Zr–C electrocatalysts are investigated by cyclic voltammetry, CO-stripping voltammetry, and chronoamperometry. All the Pt/Zr–C electrocatalysts synthesized in this study exhibited higher MOR efficiency than that of the commercial E-TEK Pt/C electrocatalyst, and the electrocatalyst using Zr–C support annealed at 300 °C, achieving the highest MOR efficiency among all the electrocatalysts.
