Preparation of CuPc/RGO Nanocomposites and Their Electrocatalytic Behaviors for Oxygen Reduction Reaction
In this paper, copper phthalocyanine/reduced graphene oxide (CuPc/RGO) nanocomposites were synthesized by aromatic π-π stacking interaction and well characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and fluorescence spectrometry. The composites were modified on the surface of glass carbon electrode (GCE) and their electrochemical behaviors of CuPc/RGO for electrocatalytic oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) were studied by cyclic voltammetry (CV). The study showed when the mass ratio of RGO to CuPc in composite achieved 1:1, the composite film performed excellent electrocatalytic activity towards the ORR.
