Abstract We demonstrate a new defect mechanism of carbons for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). It is predicted by the first principles calculations that a type of 585 defect on graphene (G585) is more effective than N-doping for the ORR, and our experimental investigations show strong support to this theoretical prediction.
