Carbon for the oxygen reduction reaction: a defect mechanism

Zhao, Huanyu and Sun, Chenghua and Jin, Zhao and Wang, Da-Wei and Yan, Xuecheng and Chen, Zhigang ORCID: and Zhu, Guangshan and Yao, Xiangdong (2015) Carbon for the oxygen reduction reaction: a defect mechanism. Journal of Materials Chemistry A, 3 (22). pp. 11736-11739. ISSN 2050-7488


We demonstrate a new defect mechanism of carbons for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). It is predicted by the first principles calculations that a type of 585 defect on graphene (G585) is more effective than N-doping for the ORR, and our experimental investigations show strong support to this theoretical prediction.
