Metal–Organic-Framework-Derived Atomically Dispersed Mn–N–C Electrocatalysts Boosting Oxygen Reduction Modulated by Anion Exchange of Permanganate

Publication Date Nov 4, 2022

Abstract

Mn-N-C materials have received increasing interest in recent years because of their low Fenton reactivity and ORR activity comparable to those of their Fe-N-C and Co-N-C counterparts. In this contribution, an atomically dispersed Mn-N-C electrocatalyst with a prominent oxygen reduction performance was constructed by employing a cationic Cd-MOF as a precursor that can facilely and accurately introduce MnO4- anions through anion exchange. The best-performing Mn-N-C catalyst displays a 0.96 V (vs RHE) Eonset (onset potential) and a 0.87 V (vs RHE) E1/2 (half-wave potential) in an alkaline solution, which exceed those of the benchmark Pt/C catalyst. In particular, the maximal power density of the self-made zinc-air battery reaches 200 mW·cm-2, surpassing that of most reported Mn-N-C materials.
