It was recently shown that the monolayers of some metals deposited at underpotentials on gold can substantially increase the rates of some redox reactions 1 , and the rate of oxygen reduction:. This note reports the catalytic effects observed in oxidation of formic acid on platinum caused by the underpotential deposition of up to a monolayer quantities of several metals.
