First Insight into Fluorinated Pt/Carbon Aerogels as More Corrosion-Resistant Electrocatalysts for Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell Cathodes

Abstract : This study evaluates the fluorination of a carbon aerogel and gives first insights into its durability when used as platinum electrocatalyst substrate for proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) cathodes. Fluorine has been introduced before or after platinum deposition. The different electrocatalysts are physico-chemically and electrochemically characterized, and the results discussed by comparison with commercial Pt/XC72 from E-Tek. The results demonstrate that the level of fluorination of the carbon aerogel can be controlled. The fluorination modifies the texture of the carbons by increasing the pore size and decreasing the specific surface area, but the textures remain appropriate for PEMFC applications. Two fluorination sites are observed, leading to both high covalent C-F bonds and weakened ones, the quantity of which depends on whether the treatment is done before or after platinum deposition. The order of the different treatments is very important. Indeed, the presence of platinum contributes to the fluorination mechanism, but leads to amorphous platinum, which is demonstrated rather inactive towards the oxygen reduction reaction. On the contrary, a better durability was demonstrated for the fluorinated and then platinized catalyst compared both to the same but not fluorinated catalyst and to the reference commercial material (based on the loss of the electrochemical real surface area after accelerated stress tests).
