Finite fossil fuels and destroyed nature make us to rely on develop renewable energy resources. One of the promising energy systems is metal-air battery which meets drawbacks of traditional metal-ion battery. The redox reaction of metal and oxygen (O2) in air generates electrical energy. A key issue of metal-air battery is to improve the efficiency of cathode that occur redox reaction of O2 such as oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER). ⓒ 2014 DGIST
