Abstract Binary and ternary composite films of Pd, multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and Ni are obtained on glassy carbon electrodes and investigated as electrocatalysts for the ethanol oxidation reaction in alkaline medium. The steady-state anodic Tafel polarization study shows that small introduction (1–5%) of MWCNTs to Pd increases the apparent electrocatalytic activity greatly, the magnitude of enhancement, however, being the greatest (∼26 times) with 1%MWCNT. Addition of 1%Ni to the… CONTINUE READING
