Paper Title:
Oxygen Reduction Reaction Activity of Pyrochlore Oxide Electrocatalysts Prepared by Precipitation Method
  Abstract

The Mn-doped pyrochlores Pb2Ru1.5Mn0.5O7- (PRMns) samples were synthesized by a precipitation method, followed by heat-treatments at temperatures of 300-800oC. Effects of the heat-treatments on their electrocatalytic activities for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) were examined by semi-steady state voltammetry with a rotating ring-disk electrode in 0.1 M KOH solution at 70oC. The PRMns showed the best ORR activity for the 500oC-heat-treated PRMn. The onset potential of the ORR current was over 1.0 V vs RHE, and the efficiency of 4-electron reduction was almost 100%. The maximum in the ORR activity for the 500°C-heat-treated PRMn resulted from a trade-off effect between their crystallinity and specific surface areas.
