Viktoriia A. Saveleva de l'Institut Paul Scherrer (Villigen, Suisse) donnera un séminaire intitulé "Fe-based non-noble metal oxygen reduction catalysts: from synthesis to fuel cell application" le mardi 3 décembre au LEPMI, 1130 rue de la Piscine, Domaine Universitaire, salle 146.
Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) play a vital role in a future carbon-neutral transportation scenario based on hydrogen as the energy carrier. Fe-based non-noble metal oxygen reduction catalysts of the Fe/N/C-type have attracted considerable interest as an inexpensive replacement for state-of-the-art Pt-based materials on the cathode side of the PEFCs . In this talk, I would like to introduce you the Fe/N/C catalysts synthesized in our laboratory, based on polyacrylonitrile as the C and N-precursor, sodium carbonate as the pore inducing agent and Fe-phenanthroline as the metal precursor . The structure of these materials have been studied using various advanced spectroscopic methods, such as X-ray photoelectron, absorption, emission and Mössbauer spectroscopies , while the electrochemical activity of these materials was estimated by rotating disc electrode as well as in PEFC.
