Platinized asbestos electrocatalysts were prepared by a variety of procedures. These catalysts were incorporated into test electrodes which were electrochemically evaluated in hydrogen - oxygen ambient temperature fuel cells. Catalysts were further scrutinized by the measurement of their specific platinum surface areas, and by the examination of electron micrographs of the materials. Fabrication procedure and composition of platinized asbestos containing electrodes were optimized, and fuel cell performances of electrodes containing the test catalysts were compared with the specific platinum surface areas of the catalysts.
