Carbon-Based Electrocatalysts Derived From Biomass for Oxygen Reduction Reaction: A Minireview.
ABSTRACT: Oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) electrocatalysts derived from biomass have become one of the research focuses in hetero-catalysis due to their low cost, high performance, and reproducibility properties. Related researches are of great significance for the development of next-generation fuel cells and metal-air batteries. Herein, the preparation methods of various biomass-derived catalysts and their performance in alkaline, neutral, and acidic media are summarized. This review clarifies the research progress of biomass carbon-based electrocatalysts for ORR in acidic, alkaline and neutral media, and discusses the future development trends. This minireview can give us an important enlightenment to practical application in the future.
