Hierarchical porous carbon materials prepared by direct carbonization of Al-PCP as Pt-catalyst support for oxygen reduction reaction

Abstract

Hierarchical porous carbon materials (HPC) were prepared with Al-based PCP as the starting templates by direct carbonization and used as the matrix to support Pt catalyst. The as-prepared HPC was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and Nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherm. The Pt-catalyst supported on HPC (Pt/HPC) was prepared by means of microwave irradiation method and characterized by SEM, TEM, XRD and Raman spectroscopy. The electrochemical activities and stabilities of the Pt/HPC catalysts for oxygen reduction reaction were evaluated in acidic media by cyclic voltammetry, linear sweep voltammetry and accelerated durability testing, respectively. The results show that Pt/HPC exhibits higher electrocatalytic activity and better stability compared with the commercial E-TEK Pt/C due to the hierarchical porous structure and high specific surface area of HPC.
