Abstract

Fuel cells have important applications in recent decades due to high-energy demands, fossil fuel depletions, and environmental pollution throughout world. Pt/Pd nanoparticles/polyoxometalate/ionic liquid (ILs) nanohybrid synthesized for the first time and characterized by transmission electron microscope, scanning electron microscope, X-ray photo electron spectroscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction method. A cost-effective catalyst has been developed on Pt/Pd nanoparticles/polyoxometalate/ionic liquid nanohybrid. The developed catalyst based on bimetallic nanoparticle demonstrates effective methanol oxidation in comparison with catalysts on monometallic nanoparticle and polyoxometalate/ionic liquid nanohybrid.
