A microkinetic model for glycerol oxidation over Pt-Bi/C catalyst was developed based on a proposed mechanism. The kinetics was then investigated backward using intermediates as the starting reactants.  The experimental data were used to fit the kinetic model to obtain the kinetic parameters for each step .
