Dysprosium based Coordination Polymer and its Application towards Oxygen Reduction Reaction

Abstract

A new Dysprosium based coordination polymer (Dy-CP) has been synthesized by solvothermal method and studied for ORR catalysis. The catalytically active Dy2O3 on graphitized carbon was synthesized from this particular Dy-CP by annealing. Generally, MOFs containing transition elements like Zn, Fe, Co have been studied for ORR and they show very good activity as ORR catalyst. Though lanthanide based perovskites also have been explored for ORR, however lanthanide-based MOF/CPs have not been evaluated for the same. The promising activities of other transition metal based oxides led us to study the ORR activity of Dysprosium-based CP. We studied the graphitization of this Dy-based CP under particular annealing conditions as a precursor molecule for porous nano-carbon synthesis and how it influences the ORR activity.
