Scrutinizing intrinsic oxygen reduction reaction activity of a Fe−N−C catalyst via scanning electrochemical cell microscopy

Abstract

Carbon-based nanomaterials are renowned for their exceptional properties, making them propitious candidates for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) electrocatalysis. However, their intrinsic activity is often challenging to investigate unambiguously with conventional methodologies due to the inherent complexities of such systems and the material itself. Zooming into the material and gaining electrochemical information with high resolution is a way to get rid of many experimental factors that influence the catalytic activity in macro-scale measurements. Herein, we employ nano-scale scanning electrochemical cell microscopy (SECCM) to investigate individual catalyst agglomerates with and without Nafion content. The intrinsic ORR activity of the catalyst was unravelled by using a unique approach of normalizing the data of all measured points by their distinctive electrochemical surface area (ECSA). When coupling with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the structure and morphology of the catalytically active agglomerates were visualized
