A novel structural design of a Pt/C-CeO2 catalyst with improved performance for methanol electro-oxidation by β-cyclodextrin carbonization.


Although the direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) is considered to be a promising power source for portable electronic devices and electric vehicles, [ 1–8 ] some obstacles, such as the low methanol electrooxidation kinetics from the poisoning of intermediates during the oxidation processes and methanol crossover from anode to cathode, still exist and impede… (More)
