|Abstract:||Pt/C electrocatalysts, aimed at maximizing the electrochemical surface area (ECSA) and consequently the specific mass activity of fuel cell reactions, are obtained by firstly depositing Pt nanoparticles on colloidal silica (Pt-silica), followed by the adsorption of the latter onto a carbon support. This method of catalyst preparation increases Pt metal utilization and generates accessible void space in the interpenetrating particle network of carbon and silica for the facile transport of reactants and products. Both electrochemical hydrogen adsorption/desorption and CO oxidation measurements show an increase in the ECSA using this approach. Methanol electrooxidation is used as a test reaction to evaluate the catalytic activity. It is found that the silica modified catalyst is three times as active as a catalyst prepared without silica, under otherwise identical conditions. © 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.|
