Résumé / Abstract

TiO2 nanotubes have been synthesized using anodic alumina membrane as template. Highly dispersed platinum nanoparticles have been supported on the TiO2 nanotube. The supported system has been characterized by electron microscopy and electrochemical analysis. SEM image shows that the nanotubes are well aligned and the TEM image shows that the Pt particles are uniformly distributed over the TiO2 nanotube support. A homogeneous structure in the composite nanomaterials is indicated by XRD analysis. The electrocatalytic activity of the platinum catalyst supported on TiO2 nanotubes for methanol oxidation is found to be better than that of the standard commercial E-TEK catalyst.
