Results of an investigation of the electrocatalytic oxidation of methanol at carbon-supported Au-Pt nanoparticle catalysts were presented. The exploration of the bimetallic composition on carbon black support was aimed at modifying the catalytic properties at the anode in methanol oxidation fuel cells. Au-Pt nanoparticles of 2-5 nm core sizes with organic monolayer encapsulation were prepared by several synthesis and processing methods. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 228th ACS National Meeting (Philadelphia, PA 8/22-26/2004).
