AbstractAmong various earth-abundant and noble metal-free catalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), manganese-based oxides are promising candidates owing to the rich variety of manganese valence. Herein, an extremely facile method for the synthesis of cubic and orthorhombic phase coexisting Mn(II)O electrocatalyst as an efficient ORR catalyst was explored. The obtained MnO electrocatalyst with oxygen vacancies shows a significantly elevated ORR catalytic activity with a half-wave potential (E-1/2) of as high as 0.895 V, in comparison with that of commercial Pt/C (E-1/2 = 0.877 V). More impressively, the MnO electrocatalyst exhibits a marked activity enhancement after test under a constant applied potential for 1000 s thanks to the in situ generation and stable presence of high-valence manganese species (Mn(3+)and Mn4+) during the electrochemical process, initiating a synergetic catalytic effect with oxygen vacancies, which is proved to largely accelerate the adsorption and reduction of O(2)molecules favoring the ORR activity elevation. Such an excellent ORR catalytic performance of this MnO electrocatalyst is applied in Zn-air battery, which shows an extra-high peak power density of 63.2 mW cm(-2)in comparison with that (47.4 mW cm(-2)) of commercial Pt/C under identical test conditions.
