Summary of "Bimetallic Metal-Organic-Framework/Reduced Graphene Oxide Composite as Bifunctional Electrocatalyst for Rechargeable Zn-Air Batteries."

The most challenging issue in the development of metal-air batteries is the insufficient catalytic activity of cathode towards oxygen evolution and reduction reactions (OER/ORR). Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and MOF-based electrocatalysts have drawn considerable attention for replacement of noble-metal electrocatalysts. Here, the rational design and synthesis of bimetallic CoNi-MOF nanosheets/Reduced Graphene Oxide (rGO) hybrid electrocatalyst is reported. The CoNi-MOF nanosheets were in situ grown onto rGO assisted by the surfactant modulation. The newly developed CoNi-MOF/rGO hybrid, consisting of homogeneously distributed nanosheets encapsulated by rGO, display excellent electrocatalytic activities towards OER and ORR. The much improved bifunctional catalytic performance is ascribed to the synergy among the CoNi-MOF nanosheets and rGO, the abundant exposed active sites and the enhanced electron conductivity. Moreover, the rechargeable Zn-air battery with CoNi-MOF/rGO based air electrode displays high energy density and cycling stability, demonstrating the great potential as advanced bifunctional electrocatalysis in electronic devices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Supramolecular networks that consist of ordered arrangements of organic electron donor linkers (usually ditopic or polytopic organic carboxylates) and metal cations. They can have an extremely high surface area and adjustable pore size that allows for the insertion of other molecules capable of various functions such as catalysis, capture of carbon dioxide, and drug delivery.

A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.
