Ti1-xZrxO2 complex oxide particles with 0.02 ≤ x ≤ 0.1 show superior catalytic performances for the direct power storage into glycolic acid via electroreduction of oxalic acid. The atomic pair distribution function analysis of X-ray total scatterings suggested that structural periodicity is the key factor for the catalytic enhancement.
