Electrocatalytic oxidation of water observed on a nano-gold/palladium electrode

Author affiliations

Abstract

New and unknown electrocatalytic oxidation of water was found to occur on a nano-gold attached palladium electrode. Since the oxidation potential was negative enough to that of well-known normal oxidation of water to form O2, the direct use of water as a fuel, instead of alcohols, might be possible using the nano-gold/palladium electrode.
