  Electrocatalytic reduction of oxygen at electrochemically deposited Pt ad-layer modified Au(111) electrodes was studied in an O2-saturated NaOH (0.1 M) solution. The results were compared with those obtained by using a polycrystalline Pt electrode and another Pt-deposited electrode prepared by replacement with Cu on bare Au(111). Linear sweep voltammetry displayed a positive shift of the oxygen reduction potential by about 0.14 V compared to the bare Au(111) electrode. This shift was about 0.06 V compared to a Pt disk electrode. Tafel slopes gradually changed between 0.06 and 0.1 V/dec, from 0.075 to -0.10 V/dec, from lower to higher current density region. The Pt ad-layer clearly served as a catalyst for oxygen reduction via 4-electron transfer. In terms of the desired shift in reduction potential and increased current density, the best electrocatalytic activity was obtained with a 30-s electrodeposited Pt ad-layer modified Au(111) electrode.

  The electrochemical oxidation of methanol was investigated by using various ad-layer modified Au(111) electrodes in alkaline media in comparison to Au(111), polycrystalline Pd, and polycrystalline Pt electrodes. Catalytic activity of gold toward methanol oxidation has tended to increase in more alkaline media, as reflected in the oxidation peak in the concentration range of NaOH (0.1-3.0 M) studied here. The oxidation peak potential of methanol shifted to more negative potentials, indicating a pH-dependent surface reaction. Among the electrodes studied, single-crystal gold electrode surfaces modified with Pd and Pt ad-layers displayed the highest catalytic activity for methanol oxidation. Additional shifts of about 350 mV in the oxidation peak potential of methanol was observed for both ad-layer modified electrodes to more negative potentials compared to that of bare electrodes. The Pd and Pt ad-layer modified Au(111) electrode surfaces did not only supply a superior electrical contact, but also accelerated electron transfer, as shown by the increase in peak current and the positive shift in peak potential. This effect was supported by the doublelayer capacitance measurements of bare Au(111) and Pd ad-layer modified singlecrystal electrodes where the potential of zero charge changed from 15 to 5 mV.
