Inexpensive gram scale synthesis of porous Ti4O7 for high performance polymer electrolyte fuel cell electrodes

Chem Commun (Camb). 2021 Nov 30;57(95):12772-12775. doi: 10.1039/d1cc05144j.


As a fuel cell catalyst support, more than 2 g of Magnéli phase Ti4O7 fine-particles were synthesized in a single reaction via an inexpensive route. The single-cell performance reached that of commercial carbon-supported platinum, with an excellent load cycle durability, one of the highest ever reported for oxide-supported platinum catalysts.
