Pd-induced Pt(iv) reduction to form Pd@Pt/CNT core@shell catalyst for a more complete oxygen reduction

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe a facile and controllable process for preparing Pd@Pt/CNT core@shell catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) via Pd-induced Pt(IV) reduction on Pd/CNT. The mass-specific activity for the ORR of the Pd@Pt/CNT catalysts is 7–9 times higher than that of the state-of-the-art Pt/C catalysts, but the yield of H2O2, a harmful species for the stability of catalysts, of the former is only 14.1% of that of the latter. The reason for the enhanced activity and the lower H2O2 yield on the Pd@Pt/CNT catalysts was studied by DFT calculations.
