A surprising substituent effect in corroles on the electrochemical activation of oxygen reduction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Four β-pyrrole-substituted cobalt(III) corroles were studied as electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction. The results disclose high dependence of the corrole's performance on its substituents, but once adsorbed on a high surface area carbon, this effect vanishes, resulting in a better catalytic performance than most well-defined molecular electrocatalysts for this reaction.
