Nanostructured Platinum-Free Catalysts of Oxygen Reduction based on Metal Chalcogenide Cobalt Clusters
- 34 Downloads
Nanostructured catalysts were synthesized by deposition of cobalt selenide and telluride on highly dispersed carbon black from solutions of corresponding metal chalcogenide clusters. The catalysts were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. The electroreduction of oxygen at these catalysts is accompanied by consumption of four electrons. The catalysts were shown to be tolerant to methanol.
