In this work well defined Pt surfaces have been used with an electro-catalytic purpose. Formic acid oxidation has been selected as a model reaction in which surface controlled bimetallic systems obtained by means of the irreversible adsorption technique have been tested. Glucose oxidation has been used to study the role of long-range surface order in this reaction. These results give basic knowledge for the design of selective metal electrocatalysts.
