Résumé

Tartaric acid emerges as an ecofriendly organic for the biogenic preparation of micro-and nanostructured materials. For those synthesis mainly dictated by the coordination chemistry, questions remain open about the impact of the alkalinity on the nature of the resulting material as well as the properties. On the other hand, the design of advanced catalytic materials for the direct production of hydrogen peroxide from the air is particularly needed. We report herein new synthesis, physicochemical and electrocatalytic insights from bismuth-based materials. It was found that the tight control of the alkalinity of the synthesis medium through the molar ratio R = [sodium hydroxide]/[bismuth (III) nitrate] leads to the production of a library of bismuth-based materials composed of metallic, (oxy)hydroxide, and oxide structures owing to the bismuth-tartrate complexes as intermediates. Electroanalytical studies show an oxygen-to-hydrogen peroxide selectivity in 0.1 M KOH of 77, 88 and 92% for R = 0, 12 and 30, respectively. In 1 M KOH, the selectivity is 90 and 96% for R = 12 and 30, respectively. The production rate is 69 ± 3 and 44 ± 3 mol kg −1 cm −2 during 2 h, corresponding to a faradaic efficiency of 92 ± 4 and 62 ± 5% for R = 12 and 30, respectively. Those results place the present materials among the best known oxygento-hydrogen peroxide reduction catalysts without the need for preparing alloys or specific surface modification. This work contributes in engineering novel catalytic materials for the advanced application of the on-site production of valuable chemicals.
