To improve the power generation of microbial fuel cell (MFC), the cathode is modified to increase its oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) activity by using Co/UiO-66, which derived from pyrolyzing the mixture of Co(NO3)2 as the metal precursor incorporated with NH2-UiO-66. It was found that Co/UiO-66 (MOF-900) has been developed as a high-performance electrocatalyst for ORR at a pyrolysis temperature of 900 °C. Therefore, Co/UiO-66 should be a promising oxygen reduction catalyst for application in MFCs. This study provides technical and theoretical validation for the MFC performance improvement by ORR active MOF-derived catalysts modified cathodes.
