Preparation of Iron Phthalocyanine Catalyzed Carbon Electrodes by Chemical Modification
A technique for chemically bonding and polymerizing organometallic chelate catalysts on a carbon substrate has been developed, with the objective of improving catalyst activity and stability for the reduction of oxygen in acidic electrolytes. Acetylene black carbon was chemically modified by bonding with polymerized iron tetrachlorophthalocyanine catalyst, followed by heat treatment. An electrode made with this catalyst showed significant improvement in activity and stability as compard with a similar unmodified catalytic electrode.
