Title
A novel improvement on nano-deposition of Ru on Pt for fuel cell applications
Abstract

A new avenue for analyzing Ru deposition solution and depositing uniform nano-sized Ru structures on Pt substrates with enhanced reproducibility is shown in this work. UV–vis spectrophotometry in conjunction with electrochemical analysis shows that the deposition has a 5-day stability period between 2 and 6 days of its aging. During this stability period, UV–vis spectra showed that Ru(III) and Ru(IV) complexes of [Ru(H2O)Cl5]2−, [RuH2O(OH)2Cl3]− and Ru-sulfates are in equilibrium. Electrochemical and in situ STM analysis also revealed that Ru nano-structures can be reproducibly deposited onto Pt using a diffusion control potential range of −0.47 to −0.32 V/MSE found in this work. The presence of both metallic Ru and Ru oxides within the deposit from XPS analysis suggests that the different Ru complexes present in the aged solution are involved in multiple parallel reduction processes for Ru deposition.

Graphical abstractA new avenue for analyzing a Ru deposition solution and depositing uniform Ru nano-structures on Pt substrates with enhanced reproducibility were demonstrated. UV–vis spectroscopy along with electrochemical and in situ STM analyses revealed that solution aging produced a 5-day stability period to allow Ru deposition onto Pt when applying potential from the diffusion control region found in this work.
