Abstract

The present paper reports on the rapid fabrication of Pd nanoparticles on glassy carbon electrode by eletrodeposition technique. It suggests that such film exhibits good catalytic activity and stability with respect to methanol oxidation in an alkaline media. It also suggests that the loading of the Pd nanoparticles on the substrate and therefore the effective catalytic area can be tuned by the deposition time used.
