“MICROFLUIDIC PLATFORMS FOR THE INVESTIGATION OF METAL CATALYSTS IN MEMBRANELESS FUEL CELL SYSTEMS"

Graphene supported Pd–Rh–Sn trimetallic electrocatalysts are prepared by the thermal decomposition of a polymeric precursor method, and used as the anode electrocatalysts for membraneless fuel cell. The physical and electrochemical properties of the as-prepared electrocatalysts are investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), cyclic voltammetry (CV), chronoamperometry (CA) and fuel cell test. XRD results show that the diffraction peaks in Pd–Rh–Sn/G catalysts shift slightly to higher 2θ values compared with that of Pd/G catalyst, suggesting the formation of Pd–Rh–Sn alloying. TEM results show that the morphologies of Pd–Rh–Sn trimetallic catalysts are uniformly spherical with the particle size of about 4.5 nm on the graphene surface. Besides, it has been found that the Pd–Rh–Sn /G (1:1:1) catalysts have much higher catalytic activity for the oxidation of Ethanol than Pd/G catalyst. The membraneless fuel cell with Pd–Rh–Sn /G (1:1:1) anode ca
