- ... The oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is pivotal in renewable energy technologies, such as in fuel cells and metal–air batteries. Precious-metal-free electrochemical ORR is a critical component in designing cost-effective electrochemical energy conversion devices. We show here the surface modification of carbon nanotubes (CNT) through one-step oxygen plasma irradiation, which induces doping and char ...
