Abstract

The electrochemical activity for oxygen reduction in acid and alkali electrolytes of carbon electrodes with platinum-group bimetal catalysts, viz., Pt---Ru and Pt---Pd, has been measured as a function of electrode composition. Electrodes containing 4 wt.% Pt + 6 wt.% Pd have been found to exhibit the maximum catalytic activity, and this is also higher than that of the individual metal catalysts.
