Abstract

A Mn/Co dual nanoparticle-decorated hierarchical carbon structure was derived from a Zn/Mn/Co/chitosan composite hydrogel. This strategy critically relied on the formation of a supramolecularly crosslinked hydrogel that allowed the efficient and homogeneous incorporation of highly active Mn/Co species onto the surface of hierarchical carbon structures. The resultant electrocatalyst outperformed Pt/C toward the oxygen reduction reaction in 0.1 M KOH electrolytes.
