Layered electrochemically reduced graphene oxide (ER-GO) sheets incorporated with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) have been fabricated as an efficient support for Pt nanoparticles on a glassy carbon (GC) electrode. The as-prepared Pt-loaded PEDOT/ER-GO composite electrode exhibits not only the high mass peak current density (390 A g(-1)) but also the good long-term catalytic stability toward the ethanol electrooxidation. The Pt/PEDOT/ER-GO also shows stronger tolerance to poisoning species compared with the commercial JM 20% Pt/C electrode. The high electrocatalytic activity of Pt/PEDOT/ER-GO is mainly described to the good electrochemical activity of PEDOT/ER-GO composites and the well-dispersed Pt nanoparticles resulting in the large electrochemical active surface area of Pt (47.1 m(2) g(-1)).
