A systematic study of the electrochemical behaviour of platinum alloyed with other platinum metals has not previously been attempted. Some recent research directed to this end is briefly reported here, and shows the enhanced electrocatalytic activity of the alloys studied compared with bright platinum itself for the electrochemical reduction and evolution of oxygen in acid solution.
