Abstract: AuPt nano particles are bi-functional catalysts for Oxygen Reduction Reaction (ORR) and Oxygen Evolution Reaction (OER) that were taken place on air electrodes in lithium air batteries. Magnetic field has been applied during electrodeposition for the preparation of AuPt particles. With the increase of the magnetic flux density under constant current density, the grain size decreases from about 1μm to 200nm and the activity of the AuPt catalyst increases. The magnetic field oriented vertical to the electric field has a promotion effect on increasing the catalytic ability of AuPt/carbon electrode. By pulse plating, the grain size decreases to about 100nm. By adjusting parameters of the electric field and the magnetic field, controllable in-situ preparation of AuPt catalyst with various morphology and catalytic activity could be achieved.
