Zeolite NaX was modified by Pt and Pt/Ru nanodispersed metallic clusters. This modification was achieved by zeolite impregnation with acetylacetonate salt/acetone solution, followed by acetone evaporation and thermal decomposition of organometallic complex. Samples characterization was performed by X-ray diffraction analysis, nitrogen adsorption-desorption measurements and Raman spectroscopy. The incorporation of metal into zeolite cavities induced the amorphisation of the zeolite framework on the local level. The mixture of modified zeolite and 10 wt% of carbon black, in a form of thin layer, was pasted to a glassy carbon surface by Nafion. Electrocatalytic properties of metal-modified zeolites were tested in CO electrooxidation reaction. The mutual influence between Pt and Ru atoms enhanced electroactivity of Pt/Ru-modified zeolite toward carbon monoxide electrooxidation. The behavior of untreated 13X zeolite was investigated under the same condition in order to asses the influence o...f the support. Gradual deactivation of 13X electrode occurred.
