Greener Method to a Manganese Oxygen Reduction Reaction Electrocatalyst: Anion Electrolyte Effects on Electrocatalytic Performance
Efforts to reduce the cost of production and reduce hazards associated with catalyst production, as well as improve catalytic performance of fuel cells, is increasingly gaining attention in chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering. Costs, particularly of the catalyst system, are incurred in each step of production, including raw materials and their processing, catalyst preparation, and immobilization on electrodes. Here is described a low-temperature neutral pH method of electrodepositing a manganese oxygen-reducing electrocatalyst for alkaline fuel cell systems. The analysis emphasizes the effects of anions used during the deposition process and their effect on catalytic performance.
