- A Rh-Sn nanoparticle is achieved by combinatorial approaches for application as an active and stable electrocatalyst in the oxygen reduction reaction. Both metallic Rh and metallic Sn exhibit activities too low to be utilized for electrocatalytic reduction of oxygen. However, a clean and active Rh surface can be activated by incorporation of Sn into a Rh nanoparticle through the combined effects of lateral repulsion, bifunctional mechanism, and electronic modification. The corrosion-resistant property of Rh contributes to the construction of a stable catalyst that can be used under harsh fuel cell conditions. Based on both theoretical and experimental research, Rh Sn nanoparticle designs with inexpensive materials can be a potential alternative catalyst in terms of the economic feasibility of commercialization and its facile and simple surfactant-free microwave-assisted synthesis.
