Abstract:
A novel gas diffusion electrode using binary carbon supports (carbon nanotubes and active carbon) as the catalyst layer was prepared. The electrochemical properties for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in alkaline electrolyte were investigated by polarization curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The results show that the binary-support electrode exhibits higher electrocatalytic activity than the single-support electrode, and the best performance is obtained when the mass ratio of carbon nanotubes and activated carbon is 50 ∶50. The results from their electrode kinetic parameters indicate that the introduction of carbon nanotubes as a secondary support provides high accessible surface area, good electronic conductivity and fast ORR kinetics. The electrocatalytic activity of binary-support electrodes is obviously improved by the deposition of Pt nanoparticles on carbon nanotubes, even at very low Pt loading (45.7 μg/cm2). In addition, the EIS analysis results show that the process of ORR may be controlled by diffusion of oxygen in the thin film for binary-support electrodes with or without Pt catalyst.

摘要:
以纳米碳管和活性碳二元碳材料为催化层碳载体制备了氧扩散电极,采用稳态极化和电化学阻抗技术对其在碱性介质中氧还原反应的电催化活性进行了研究.结果表明,双载体电极比单载体纳米碳管、活性炭电极具有更高的电催化活性,纳米碳管和活性炭质量比为50∶50时双载体电极的催化活性最好;电极动力学参数测试表明,催化层中引入第二相纳米碳管载体提高了电极比表面积、电子导电性和氧还原反应速度;采用浸渍还原法在第二相纳米碳管载体中负载纳米级Pt催化剂,即使在低Pt负载量下(45.7 μg/cm2)也明显改善了双载体电极的催化活性.
