(578g) Palladium Nanofibers for Electrooxidation of Alcohols in Alkaline Medium
Palladium (Pd) nanofibers with high surface area had been successfully prepared. The as-prepared membranes were characterized by field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Its application for ethanol oxidation was studied extensively. The results show that the Pd nanofibers greatly promote the oxidation of ethanol in alkaline medium for fuel cell application.
