Fabrication of PdCo bimetallic nanoparticles anchored on three-dimensional ordered N-doped porous carbon as an efficient catalyst for oxygen reduction reaction

Journal Article


Abstract


  • PdCo bimetallic nanoparticles (NPs) anchored on three-dimensional (3D) ordered N-doped porous carbon (PdCo/NPC) were fabricated by an in situ synthesis. Within this composite, N-doped porous carbon (NPC) with an ordered mesoporous structure possesses a high surface area (659.6 m2 g-1), which can facilitate electrolyte infiltration. NPC also acts as a perfect 3D conductive network, guaranteeing fast electron transport. In addition, homogeneously distributed PdCo alloy NPs (∼15 nm) combined with the doping of the N element can significantly improve the electrocatalytic activity for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). Due to the structural and material superiority, although the weight percentage of PdCo NPs (∼8 wt%) is much smaller than that of commercial Pt/C (20 wt%), the PdCo/NPC catalyst exhibits similar excellent electrocatalytic activity; however, its superior durability and methanol-tolerance ability of the ORR are as great as those of commercial Pt/C in alkaline media.
