Electro-Oxidation of Ethanol on the Preparation of Electroless Ni-P Alloy Electrode
Ni-P alloy electrode was prepared by electroless plating on the Cu-Zn substrate. The surface morphology and textural properties of electrode were characterized by Scanning electron microscope(SEM), Energy dispersive spectroscopy(EDS) and X-ray diffraction(XRD). The performance of Ni-P alloy electrode was tested by cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.The results of cyclic voltammetry showed that: At room temperature, Ni-P alloy electrode had significant catalytic effect on the electrocatalytic oxidation of ethanol in alkaline solution. Results of chronoamperometry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy further confirmed the catalytic effect of Ni-P alloy electrode on the electrochemical oxidation of ethanol.
