Three-dimensionally ordered macro-/mesoporous carbon (OMMC)-supported Ag nanoparticles (Ag/OMMC) with homogeneously dispersed Ag particles are prepared and investigated as effective electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in alkaline aqueous system. The obtained Ag/OMMC catalyst displays smaller Ag particle size, higher Ag dispersion, and enhanced catalytic activity and durability compared with the carbon black Vulcan XC-72R supported Ag (Ag/XC-72R). The sizes of Ag particles supported on the OMMC and XC-72R are 4.3 and 6.5 nm, respectively. The prepared Ag/OMMC catalyst shows a positive half-wave potential of 0.79 V vs. RHE and a large diffusion-limited current of 5.6 mA cm at 0.4 V, superior to Ag/XC-72R catalyst. The better ORR performance of the Ag/OMMC is probably ascribed to the unique 3D ordered interconnected macro-/mesoporous structure, which contributes to facilitating the mass/charge transport, improving the Ag particle dispersion, and preventing the Ag particle growth and aggregation.

Unsaturated derivatives of the ESTRANES with methyl groups at carbon-13, with no carbon at carbon-10, and with no more than one carbon at carbon-17. They must contain one or more double bonds.
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.
