Revealing the effect of surface composition on multiwalled carbon nanotubes supported Pt‐Fe alloy electrocatalysts for methanol oxidation performance

Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt

The designs of efficient and inexpensive Pt-based catalysts for methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) are essential to boost the commercialization of direct methanol fuel cells. Here, the highly catalytic performance PtFe alloys supported on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) decorating nitrogen-doped carbon (NC) have been successfully prepared via co-engineering of the surface composition and electronic structure. The Pt 1 Fe 3 @NC/MWCNTs catalyst with moderate Fe 3+ feeding content (0.86 mA/mg Pt ) exhibits 2.26-fold enhancement in MOR mass activity compared to pristine Pt/C catalyst (0.38 mA/mg Pt ). Furthermore, the CO oxidation initial potential of Pt 1 Fe 3 @NC/MWCNTs catalyst is lower relative to Pt/C catalyst (0.71 V and 0.80 V). Benefited from the optimal surface compositions, the anti-corrosion ability of MWCNT, strong electron interaction between PtFe alloys and MWCNTs and the N-doped carbon (NC) layer, the Pt 1 Fe 3 @NC/MWCNTs catalyst presents an improved MOR performance and anti - CO poisoning ability. This study would open up new perspective for designing efficient electrocatalysts for the DMFCs field.
