Paper Title:
Electrocatalytic Activity of Nano-Sized Ebonex/Pt for Underpotential Deposition of Hydrogen
  Abstract

The underpotential deposition of hydrogen was studied in 0.5 mol dm-3 HClO4 solution on an electrode based on Ebonex-supported platinum electrocatalyst spread on rotation Au disk electrode (Ebonex/Pt). Pt catalyst was prepared by the impregnation method from 2-propanol solution of Pt(NH3)2(NO2)2 and Ebonex powder. Ebonex support (nonstoichiometric mixture of titanium oxides) was characterized by: X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and BET techniques. The synthesized catalyst was analyzed by TEM technique. Voltammetric profiles at the Ebonex/Pt catalyst surface in 0.5 mol dm-3 HClO4 aqueous solution obtained at different temperatures with the evaluation of the temperature effect on the reversible adsorption of the Hupd state are presented and the thermodynamic state functions for H adatom adsorption process are calculated. The chemisorptive energy strength of the Ebonex/Pt-H state is estimated in order to establish the relationship between the surface structure and the electrocatalytic activity of Ebonex/Pt electrode and compare it to the one for smooth polycrystalline Pt.
