Formatted abstract
An automated system for high-throughput electrochemical synthesis and screening of fuel cell electro-oxidation catalysts is described. This system consists of an electrode probe that contains counter and reference electrodes that can be positioned inside an array of electrochemical cells created within a polypropylene block. The electrode probe is attached to an automated of X-Y-Z motion system. An externally controlled potentiostat is used to apply the electrochemical potential to the catalyst substrate. The motion and electrochemical control are integrated using a user-friendly software interface. During automated synthesis the deposition potential and/or current may be controlled by a pulse program triggered by the software using a data acquisition board. The screening includes automated experiments to obtain cyclic voltammograms. As an example, a platinum-tungsten oxide (Pt-W O3) library was synthesized and characterized for reactivity towards methanol electro-oxidation.
