Structural, compositional, morphological and electrochemical characterization are important to determinate the influence of platinum in the methanol oxidation in alkaline media. These data and analysis support the research article catalytic performance of alloyed PtxPd1-x nanostructures supported on Vulcan XC-72R for the methanol oxidation in alkaline medium [1]. The data here presented included changes in the chemical composition, structure and microstructure. Also, complement data of cyclic voltammograms during activation in alkaline media as well as in presence of 1 M CH3OH to observe CO tolerance and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy measurements at two different overpotentials (0.2 and 0.3 mV) on the onset potential for methanol electro-oxidation are published in this paper. The data can be used as a reference to determinate the effect of added different amounts of Pd to Pt/C catalysts, using an organometallic compounds method and octylamine as stabilizer. The data provided in this article have not been previously published and are available to enable critical or extended analyses.
