Graphene-supported Pt and PtPd nanorods with enhanced electrocatalytic performance for the oxygen reduction reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

The combinational modification of the morphology, alloying, and support for Pt catalysts has been optimized towards the oxygen reduction reaction. Graphene-supported PtPd nanorods have lower unfilled Pt d-states than carbon-supported Pt nanoparticles (Pt/C) and their specific and mass activities after the accelerated durability test are about 6.5 and 2.7 times higher than those of Pt/C, attributed to the synergistic electronic modification effect and graphene–metal interaction.
