Abstract

A two-dimensional continuous Pt island network was successfully synthesized by pulse-potentiostatic electrodeposition on a flat silicon substrate, which showed markedly enhanced catalytic activity toward methanol electrooxidation and high CO tolerance, probably due to the synergistic effect of the Pt island catalyst and surrounding SiO2 surface layer.
