Abstract

Oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), an essential reaction in metal-air batteries and fuel cells, still faces many challenges, such as exploiting cost-effective nonprecious metal electrocatalysts and identifying their surface catalytic sites. Here we introduce bulk defects, Frank partial dislocations (FPDs), into metallic cobalt to construct a highly active and stable catalyst and demonstrate an atomic-level insight into its surface terminal catalysis. Through thermally dealloying bimetallic carbide (Co3ZnC), FPDs were in situ generated in the final dealloyed metallic cobalt. Both theoretical calculations and atomic characterizations uncovered that FPD-driven surface terminations create a distinctive type of surface catalytic site that combines concave geometry and compressive strain, and this two-in-one site intensively weakens oxygen binding. When being evaluated for the ORR, the catalyst exhibits onset and half-wave potentials of 1.02 and 0.90 V (versus the reversible hydrogen electrode), respectively, and negligible activity decay after 30,000 cycles. Furthermore, zinc-air batteries and H2-O2/air fuel cells built with this catalyst also achieve remarkable performance, making it a promising alternative to state-of-the-art Pt-based catalysts. Our findings pave the way for the use of bulk defects to upgrade the catalytic properties of nonprecious electrocatalysts.
