Due to development of the renewable energy sources, the powering of fuel cells (FCs) with bio-fuels is very important. The one of this fuel is methyl alcohol. The use of fuel cells on a large scale is mainly limited by the high cost of catalysts - mainly platinum. Elimination of Pt as catalyst would allow for wider commercial application of FCs. The paper presents a study of methyl alcohol electrooxidation on electrode with Ni- Co alloy catalyst. Researches were done by the method of polarizing curves of electrooxidation of methanol in glass vessel. Conducted measurements show that there is a possibility of electrooxidation of methanol with Ni-Co catalyst. In any case, the process of electrooxidation of methanol occurs. A maximum current density was equal 50 mA/cm2. So, the work shows possibility to use Ni-Co alloys as catalysts for fuel electrode to methyl alcohol electrooxidation.(original abstract)
