Abstract

Efficient oxide supported electrocatalysts for hydrogen and alcohol fuel cells are developed. They are characterized by a low content of platinum, exhibit high activity in the oxidation of low-molecular alcohols and tolerance to the CO poisoning. It is shown that the application of catalysts developed (Pt/SnO 2-SbO x) enables one to raise the power of fuel cells operating on ethanol approximately by two times as compared with similar fuel cells with commercial PtRu/C catalysts.
