Abstract

"Synthesis of high performance catalysts is one of the tasks for fuel cell researchers. In this thesis work, carbon supported Pt and Pt-Co alloy catalysts were prepared by several improved methods. Thermal gravity analysis (TGA), transmission electron microscope (TEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were used to characterize these catalysts. Electrochemical activities of the catalysts were measured by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and oxygen reduction reaction (ORR)"--Abstract, leaf iii.
