Title
Preparation of highly dispersed and ultrafine Pd/C catalyst and its electrocatalytic performance for hydrazine electrooxidation
Abstract

The highly dispersed and ultrafine carbon supported Pd nanoparticles (Pd/C) catalyst was synthesized by NaBH4 reduction method in the presence of ethylenediamine-tetramethylene phosphonic acid (EDTMP) ligand. The formation of the ultrafine Pd nanoparticles can be attributed to the avoidance of Pd(OH)2 precipitation and the decrease in the reduction potential of PdII species in EDTMP–PdII complex during the preparation of Pd/C catalyst. Electrochemical measurements indicated the resulting Pd/C catalyst possessed a significant electrocatalytic performance for hydrazine oxidation under the strong acidic conditions, indicating that the Pd/C catalyst has potential application in fabrication of acidic direct hydrazine fuel cell.
