Preparation of Nickel Modified Carbon Fibre Electrodes and their Application for Methanol Oxidation
MetadataShow full item record
Nickel modified carbon fibre electrodes were prepared by electrochemical oxidation and partial reduction of a graphite fibre electrode with a slow linear potential sweep in 97% H2SO4 solution followed by impregnation & ion exchange with Ni +2 species. The cyclic voltammetry of the modified electrode in an alkaline medium showed electrocatalytic activity towards methanol oxidation which is consistent with the behaviour of a polycrystalline nickel electrode in the same media. The electrode fabricated through the ion exchange with 0.1 M Ni solution provided the most significant response for solutions with lower methanol concentrations up to 0.5 M methanol while at higher concentrations of methanol, a poisoning effect was observed resulting in lower performance
