The Pt-Sn/C electrocatalysts performance greatly depends on preparation procedures and Pt:Sn atomic ratios. Here, we synthesized a series of Pt-Sn/C nanoparticle catalyst with a 20% (w/w) metal load (Pt + Sn) on carbon black with a nominal Pt:Sn atomic ratio of 3:1, NaBH4 (A) using and formic acid (B) as reducing agents aiming to study the effect of preparation method on chemical–physical properties of electrocatalyst. The onset potential of ethanol electrooxidation over Pt-Sn/C catalyst was shifted by about 0.03 V negatively in comparison with that over Pt/C catalysts. At lower potential than 0.4 V, Pt–Sn/C – (A) shows the highest current density value, while at potentials higher than 0.4 V, the Pt–Sn/C – (B) catalyst has the highest activity. The difference of activity of Pt-Sn/C – (A) and Pt-Sn/C – (B) catalyst is attributed to different grade of interaction between platinum and tin for bimetallic catalysts produced from the preparation method and capacity of reduction of reducing agent.
