Novel iridium-basedelectrocatalysts supported on SnO2/Vapor-Grown Carbon Fiber (VGCF)havebeendevelopedand characterized by FESEM, STEM, and XPS.The membraneelectrode assembly (MEA)made withtheIrO2/Sn0.98Nb0.02O2/VGCFelectrocatalystexhibited a decrease inovervoltageespeciallyunderthelow current densitycompared to the MEA made withconventionalIrO2/Ti electrocatalyst.Iridium-based SnO2/VGCF can bea good candidate for anode catalystsof water electrolysis cells.
