Emerging Pt-based electrocatalysts with highly open nanoarchitectures for boosting oxygen reduction reaction

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Developing highly efficient and stable platinum (Pt)-based electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is the most essential step toward the commercialization of fuel cells. Highly accessible reactive surfaces play a key role in boosting ORR for superior fuel cell performance due to the adequate exposure of the active surfaces and the feasible mass transport. Herein, we begin with a brief introduction to the design principles for an effective ORR electrocatalyst, which could plausibly possess high activity and durability at the same time. Corresponding with the requirements, the recent progress of rational design based on nanoarchitecture, synthesis, and electrochemical performances of Pt-based electrocatalysts with open construction is reviewed and explained accordingly.
