Platinum decorated functionalized defective acetylene black; a promising cathode material for the oxygen reduction reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel single-pot method to exfoliate and functionalize acetylene black is proposed. The deliberate functionalization was found to enhance the intrinsic oxygen reduction efficiency along with the nucleation and growth of platinum nano-particles on the surface. The resulting material showed enormously high oxygen reduction reactivity compared to its commercial counterparts.
