Iron phthalocyanine and nitrogen-doped graphene composite as a novel non-precious catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

We develop a facile method for the synthesis of an iron phthalocyanine (FePc) and nitrogen-doped graphene (NG) composite as a novel and efficient non-precious catalyst in the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). The resulting product exhibits superior ORR catalytic activity, excellent tolerance to methanol crossover, and comparable stability to commercial Pt/C, which leads to the invention of a new non-precious catalyst for ORR in fuel cells.
