Supramolecular Gel Assisted Synthesis of Co2P Nanosheets as Efficient and Stable Catalyst for Oxygen Reduction Reaction

Abstract

Developing inexpensive, active and durable nanomaterials for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) play an important role on the fuel-cell research. In this work, carbon support Co2P nanosheets (Co2P/C) electrocatalyst is prepared through a facile and low-cost supramolecular-gel assisted strategy. The obtained nanomaterial with nanosheet morphology presents excellent electrocatalytic performance for ORR with comparable onset- and half wave potential to Pt/C catalyst, indicating the significant role of Co2P on enhancing the electrocatalytic performance for ORR in alkaline medium. Moreover, the obtained catalyst exhibits outstanding long-term durability, methanol tolerance and four-electron pathway for ORR. The progress in this work pave a scalable way on the development of non-precious electrocatalyst with nanosheet structure for fuel cell applications.
