Dispersed Nickel Phthalocyanine Molecules on Carbon Nanotubes as Cathode Catalysts for Li-CO2 Batteries
|Corresponding Author||Yao，Yan; Liang，Yongye|
The Li-CO battery has great potential for both CO utilization and energy storage, but its practical application is limited by low energy efficiency and short cycle life. Efficient cathode catalysts are needed to address this issue. Herein, this work reports on molecularly dispersed electrocatalysts (MDEs) of nickel phthalocyanine (NiPc) anchored on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as the cathode catalyst for Li-CO batteries. The dispersed NiPc molecules efficiently catalyze CO reduction, while the conductive and porous CNTs networks facilitate CO evolution reaction, leading to enhanced discharging and charging performance compared to the NiPc and CNTs mixture. Octa-cyano substitution on NiPc (NiPc-CN) further enhances the interaction between the molecule and CNTs, resulting in better cycling stability. The Li-CO battery with the NiPc-CN MDE cathode shows a high discharge voltage of 2.72 V and a small discharging–charging potential gap of 1.4 V, and can work stably for over 120 cycles. The reversibility of the cathode is confirmed by experimental characterizations. This work lays a foundation for the development of molecular catalysts for Li-CO battery cathodes.
