Title: Janus structured Pt–FeNC nanoparticles as a catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction

Here, we present a new Janus structured catalyst consisting of Pt nanoparticles on Fe–N–C nanoparticles encapsulated by graphene layers for the ORR. The ORR activity of the catalyst increases under potential cycling as the unique Janus nanostructure is further bonded due to a synergetic effect. The present study describes an important advanced approach for the future design of efficient, stable, and low-cost Pt-based electrocatalytic systems.
