Goodenough, John Bannister and Shukla, Ashok Kumar and Silvapaliteiro, Carlos Antonio da and Jamieson, Keith Roderick and Hamnett, Andrew and Manoharan, Ramasamy (1986) Electrode for reducing oxygen. Patent Number(s) WO 8601642 A1. Patent Assignee(s) National Research Development Corporation .
An electrode for reducing oxygen has a substrate of low-ash carbon, such as coconut shells converted to charcoal. The substrate is loaded with a catalyst such as (i) Platinum phtalocyanine or (ii) lead-ruthenium oxide. In case (ii), to make the electrode, lead ions are adsorbed onto the substrate, which is then treated with a solution of ruthenium (VI) oxide, to precipitate the catalyst on the substrate.
