[Abstract] 

Maximum atom efficiency as well as distinct chemoselectivity is expected for electrocatalysis on atomically dispersed (or single-site) metal centers, but its realization remains challenging so far because carbon as the most widely used electrocatalyst support cannot effectively stabilize them. Here we report that a sulfur-doped zeolite-templated carbon, simultaneously exhibiting extra-large sulfur content (17 wt% S) as well as a unique carbon structure (i.e., highly curved 3-dimensional networks of graphene nanoribbons), can stabilize a relatively high loading of Pt (5 wt%) in the form of atomically dispersed platinum species. In the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), this catalyst does not follow a conventional 4-electron pathway producing H2O, but selectively produces H2O2 even over extended times without significant degradation of the activity. Thus this approach constitutes a potentially promising route for producing important fine chemical H2O2, and also offers new opportunities for tuning selectivity of other electrochemical reactions on various metal catalysts.
