Abstract

Nanoparticles of Co3Fe alloy is prepared on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets by modified polyol method. Synthesized alloy particles are characterized by various physicochemical techniques. TEM and SEM pictures showed homogeneously dispersed alloy nanoparticles on the RGO sheets. Electrochemistry of alloy nanoparticles is investigated in alkaline medium. The result shows that oxygen evaluation reaction (OER) activity of Co3Fe-RGO is higher than Pt -black particles. RDE studies in alkaline medium shows that oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) follow four electron pathway. It is suggest that Co3Fe-RGO is an efficient non-precious catalyst for oxygen (ORR/OER) reactions in alkaline electrolyte for PEMFC applications. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
