Synthesis and Characterization of High Electrocatalytic Active Nanosized RuO2 Powder with Narrow Distribution by Ultrasonic Precipitation
In this paper, synthesis of RuO2 with uniform nanosized sphere-like morphologies by ultrasonic precipitation using ammonia is presented. The structures, properties and electrocatalytic performance of materials were characterized by XRD, FE-SEM, CV and polarization curve. FE-SEM photographs showed that the sample prepared by ultrasonic precipitation has a relatively narrow size distribution compared with the sample prepared by conventional precipitation with magnetic stirring. The CV and polarization curve for OER (oxygen evolution reaction) confirmed that electrochemical active surface area and OER activity of sample by ultrasonic precipitation are higher than that of sample by conventional precipitation under magnetic stirring.
