The copper modified carbon paste electrode (Cu-CPE) is designed and prepared by electro deposition of copper onto carbon paste surface for a direct ethanol fuel cell (DEFC). Themorphology and structure of the catalyst layer were analyzed by MEB. The catalyst coating layer shows an alloy character. The results show that Cu-CPE is very active for the ethanol oxidation.
