Pt nanoparticles-loaded carbon black (CB) was prepared from Pt carbonyl cluster complexes, and had much narrower size distribution than commercial Pt nanoparticles/CB. In the former the monodispersed Pt nanoparticles were highly dispersed on CB without aggregation even at high Pt loading of 80 wt.%. Hydrodynamic voltammograms in O2-saturated 0.05 M H2SO4 solution at 30 °C showed that the onset potential of oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) current for the monodispersed Pt nanoparticles/CB electrode was more positive than that for a polycrystalline Pt electrode and similar to that for the commercial Pt nanoparticles/CB electrode. Moreover, the mass activity for ORR for the monodispersed Pt nanoparticles/CB electrode was ca. 4.9 times higher than that for the commercial Pt nanoparticles/CB electrode, clearly indicating that the control of size distribution of Pt nanoparticles is meaningful for reducing the Pt consumption.
