A kind of reduced graphene oxide decorated with titanium-based (RGO/TiO2) composites are successfully synthesized and employed in this current study as a novel nonprecious metal catalyst for enhancing bioelectricity generation and cathodic oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in single chamber microbial fuel cells (MFCs). Compared with commercial Pt/C, RGO/TiO2 shows obviously enhanced oxygen reduction reaction activity due to the appropriately-permeated, large electrochemical active area, enough exposure of electrocatalytic active sites of RGO/TiO2. The air-cathode MFC with RGO/TiO2-1 cathode achieves 1786.7 mW m-3 of power density, 86.7% ±â€¯1.2% of COD removal and 31.6% ±â€¯1.1% of CE, which are higher than commercial Pt/C. Moreover, RGO/TiO2-1 cathode exhibits high-effective electrocatalytic activity, and the power density of RGO/TiO2-1 can keep a stable level and only has a minor decline (5.35%) during 30-cycles operation. These results indicate that RGO/TiO2-1 is a potential cathode catalyst, markedly enhancing cathode ORR, wastewater treatment efficiency, and bioelectricity generation of MFC.
