Platinised Ti electrodes were produced by thermal decomposition of H 2PtCl6 onto mesh substrates. Surface properties and morphology of the Pt deposit on Ti mesh were characterised using SEM, EDAX and XRD analysis. A highly dispersed Pt deposit layer was obtained. Direct methanol fuel cell tests with anion exchange membrane electrolyte and platinised Ti mesh anode were carried out and compared to conventional hot-pressed carbon supported Pt catalysts. The platinised Ti mesh anode showed higher catalytic activity than the conventional Pt/C electrode, and gave a stable fuel cell performance. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
