On the chemistry of activation of a commercial carbon-supported PtRu electrocatalyst for the methanol oxidation reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Although potential cycling has been widely used to activate PtRu electrocatalysts for methanol oxidation, little is known about the molecular/atomic level chemistry involved and also what constitutes the optimal activation. This important question is addressed herein by in situ attenuated total reflection-surface enhanced IR reflection absorption spectroscopy using methanol-generated CO as a probe.
