Project Description In this project, LaMO3 and LaNi0.5 M0.5O3 (M = Ni, Co, Fe, Mn and Cr) perovskite oxide electrocatalysts were synthesized by a combined ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid-citrate complexation technique and subsequent calcinations at 1000 oC in air. Their powder x-ray diffraction patterns demonstrate the formation of a specific crystalline structure for each composition. The catalytic property of these materials toward the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) was studied in alkaline potassium hydroxide solution using the rotating disk and rotating ring-disk electrode techniques. Carbon is considered as a crucial additive component since its addition into perovskite oxide leads to optimized ORR current density. For LaMO3 (M = Ni, Co, Fe, Mn and Cr), in terms of the ORR current densities, the performance is enhanced in the order of LaCrO3, LaFeO3, LaNiO3, LaMnO3 and LaCoO3. For LaNi0.5 M0.5O3, the ORR current performance is enhanced in the order of LaNi0.5Fe0.5O3, LaNi0.5Co0.5O3, LaNi0.5 Cr0.5O3 and LaNi0.5Mn0.5O3. Overall, LaCoO3 demonstrates the best performance. Most notably, substituting half of the nickel with cobalt, iron, manganese or chromium translates the ORR to a more positive onset potential; suggesting the beneficial catalytic effect of two transition metal cations with Mn as the most promising candidate. Koutecky-Levich analysis on the ORR current densities of all compositions indicates that the 4-electron pathway is favored on these oxides which are consistent with hydroperoxide ion formation of less than 2%.
