Abstract: 

Electrochemical activity of cathodes with Pt or Pt-Pd-electrocatalysts was studied by voltammetry method under galvanostatic conditions. The dependence of the overvoltage of hydrogen evolution reaction on the logarithm of current density and on the test time of the cathode with Pt-Pd-electrocatalysts are defined. It is shown that the electrochemical activity of cathode with Pt-Pd-electrocatalyst is two times higher than with Pt-electrocatalyst at the hydrogen evolution reaction in 30% KOH solution at 90°C. As the temperature increases from 15 to 90° C the current density at 40 mV overvoltage at the cathode with Pt-Pd-electrocatalyst increases by 8 times. The test results with this cathode electrocatalyst in the laboratory electrolyzer at a current density of 400 mA/cm2 and 65° C temperature within 11 days of intermittent regime work confirm the overvoltage stability in time.
