Synthesis of nano-TaOx oxygen reduction reaction catalysts on multi-walled carbon nanotubes connected via a decomposition of oxy-tantalum phthalocyanine

Abstract

Nano-TaOx particles were supported on multi-walled carbon nanotubes via the thermal decomposition of oxy-tantalum phthalocyanine. The phthalocyanine-derived carbon connected TaOx particles with the nanotube-support to provide a conductive path. The oxygen reduction reaction activity, which solely originated from TaOx, was above 0.9 V with larger currents than conventional TaOx particles in acidic media.
