Summary of "2D Bimetallic Zn/Fe-MOF-Derived Porous Carbon Nanosheets with High Density of Single/Paired Fe Atoms as High-Performance Oxygen Reduction Catalysts."

Developing efficient non-precious-metal catalysts to accelerate the sluggish oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is highly desired but remains a great challenge. Herein, using 2D bimetallic Zn/Fe-MOF as the precursor and g-C3N4 as the nitrogen source and stabilizer, porous carbon nanosheets doped with large amounts of single/paired Fe atoms (3.89wt%) and N (10.28wt%) are successfully prepared. It is found that the addition of g-C3N4 plays a key role in achieving high loading of Fe single/paired atoms, and the 2D nanosheet structure gives the materials a high surface area and highly porous structure, resulting in outstanding ORR catalytic activity in both alkaline and acidic solutions. Our optimal sample achieved half-wave potentials in alkaline and acid media of up to 0.86V and 0.79V (vs. RHE), respectively, values 20 mV higher than a commercial Pt/C catalyst in an alkaline medium and only 60 mV lower than Pt/C in an acidic medium. Moreover, its ORR durability was superior to that of commercial Pt/C in both electrolytes. We found that almost all the doped Fe in the sample existed as single or paired atoms coordinated with N. This work may provide an effective strategy for preparing high-performance catalysts bearing single/paired atoms by using MOFs as precursors.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.

Conditions with abnormally low levels of LIPOPROTEINS in the blood. This may involve any of the lipoprotein subclasses, including ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins); BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low-density lipoproteins); and PREBETA-LIPOPROTEINS (very-low-density lipoproteins).

A 6.6-kDa protein component of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Apo C-I displaces APO E from lipoproteins, modulate their binding to receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL), and thereby decrease their clearance from plasma. Elevated Apo C-I levels are associated with HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA and ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Polymer of polytetrafluoroethylene and carbon filaments; porous biocompatible material used in orofacial and middle ear reconstruction and as coating for metal implants.

Antilipemic agent that lowers cholesterol and triglycerides. It decreases low density lipoproteins and increases high density lipoproteins.
