Preparation and Electrochemical Properties of Pt/Mesoporous-C for Oxygen Reduction Reaction: Effect of Carbonation Temperature

Abstract:

Article Preview

The mesoporous carbon (MC) synthesized by a one-step method with tetraethyl ortho- silicate (TEOS) as silicon source, sucrose as carbon source and phosphoric acid as active agent, respectively, is used as the support to prepare Pt/MC electrocatalysts. The pore characteristics and the graphitic extend of MC can be adjusted by controlling the carbonation temperature (Tc). The maximum surface area of home-made MC is confirmed and analyzed by BET to be 860.20 m2 g-1 with Tc = 900 °C, and the main pore size of MC is 8.70 nm. The maximum mass activity (MA) and specific activity (SA) of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) on Pt/MC (P/Si = 0.5, Tc = 900 °C) are experimentally found to be 15.54 A g-1 and 18.05 mA cm-2, respectively.
