Single iron atoms coordinated to g-C3N4 on hierarchical porous N-doped carbon polyhedra as a high-performance electrocatalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Catalysts composed of isolated single Fe atoms coordinated to graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) dispersed on hierarchical porous N-doped carbon polyhedra (Fe-g-C3N4/HPNCPs) were successfully prepared. The optimized catalyst, Fe-g-C3N4/HPNCP-0.8, showed excellent electrocatalytic activity for the oxygen reduction reaction under alkaline conditions with a half-wave potential of 0.902 V, significantly outperforming commercial Pt/C, as well as high durability. The high performance stems from the synergistic effect of the atomically dispersed Fe–N2 sites and the advantages of the hierarchical porous structure for promoting mass transport and improving the accessibility of the active sites.
