Production of Pt nanoparticles-supported chelating group-modified graphene for direct methanol fuel cells

Production of Pt nanoparticles-supported chelating group-modified graphene for direct methanol... In this study, Pt nanoparticles (NPs) were supported on reduced graphene oxide with the aid of disodium ethylenediamine-tetraacetate, where the Pt iona were initially attached to EDTA-functionalized graphene oxide (EDTA-GO) sheets and then the metal ion and the graphene oxide were reduced simultaneously by ethylene glycol. Electrochemical properties of the catalysts were studied by measuring cyclic voltammetries, and functional groups of the synthesized materials were investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectrometry. Average sizes and lattice parameters were measured by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy images, and X-ray diffraction. The results showed that Pt NPs were successfully deposited on the EDTA-GO with the crystallite size of about 2.3 nm. The prepared catalysts demonstrated an enhanced tolerance towards CO poisoning, when EDTA-GO was used as supports. This suggests that EDTA plays a crucial role in the dispersion and electrocatalytic activity of the metal nanoparticles. Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
