High-performance electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction derived from cobalt porphyrin-based conjugated mesoporous polymers

Adv Mater. 2014 Mar 5;26(9):1450-5. doi: 10.1002/adma.201304147. Epub 2013 Nov 29.


A cobalt-nitrogen-doped porous carbon that exhibits a ribbon-shape morphology, high surface area, mesoporous structure, and high nitrogen and cobalt content is fabricated for high-performance self-supported oxygen reduction electrocatalytsts through template-free pyrolysis of cobalt porphyrin-based conjugated mesoporous polymer frameworks.

Keywords: electrocatalyst; metalloporphyrin; oxygen reduction; polymer frameworks; pyrolysis.
