Abstract

Monodispersed and uniform sized platinum nanoparticles were electrodeposited on carbon felt from aqueous hydrogen hexachloroplatinate solution by a potential cycling method. The deposited nanoparticles were characterized by electrochemical technique and by scanning electron microscopy. It was found that the size and distribution of the nanoparticles could be controlled by changing the deposition parameters such as the scan rate and the number of cycle. The electrocatalytic property of the nanoparticles was tested by the oxidation of hydroquinone and phenol. It was found that the felt supported nanoparticles were effective towards electrodegradation of phenolic compounds.
