Electrodes comprising thermally deposited Pt, PtRu and PtRuW on titanium mesh were evaluated for the oxidation of ethylene glycol in acidic electrolyte. The electrodes were characterised using cyclic voltammetry, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction and the effect of reactant concentration and temperature were examined. Single fuel cell tests employing the titanium mesh anode with the PtRuW catalyst showed better performance than that of the PtRu catalyst. A peak power density of 15 mW cm-2 was obtained at a temperature of 90 °C with 1.0 M ethylene glycol solution. The performance of the catalysed PtRu mesh electrode was comparable to that of a commercial, alcohol oxidation, PtRu carbon supported catalyst. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
