Notwithstanding a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) is a promising alternative device to reduce our reliance on environmentally unfriendly fossil fuel, there are several problems that should be overcome to make PEMFC more economically attractive. One of the most pivotal issues of problems is considerable overpotential associated with the slow reaction rate of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR; (1/2O2 + 2(H+ + e- ) → H2O)) at the cathode. Other tremendous challenge is the stability for electrochemical reaction, including metal dissolution and surface oxide formation, which occurs intensely in acid medium (< pH 1) at high potential (> 0.8 V). In spite of the significant technological interest in finding active and stable catalyst for ORR condition, the direct experimental inspection of the contributions of the stability involving activity has rarely been investigated in electrochemical reduction of oxygen. Herein we report more active and stable electrocatalytic cathode materials consisting of Pt-based alloys involving late and early transition metals. In particular, we focused on the electronic and lattice-strain effect of the Pt-Y alloys for the purpose of analyzing the activity. To clarify these effects, we introduced a correlation between the d-band structure of Pt induced by its lattice-strain and the ORR activity. In addition, we investigated the stability on Pt-based binary alloy electrodes by applying the calculated heat of alloy formation closely relative to the degree of segregation, a descriptor for the stability of electrocatalysts. Our results show keys toward resolving serious problems to make PEMFC economically viable.
