The synthesis of catalytic coatings on porous titanium electrodes by the method of magnetron sputtering is considered. The content of dopant ions Fe3+ and F is optimized as regards the activity and stability of the PbO2 catalyst in the reaction of ozone electrogeneration as well as the current efficiency with respect to ozone. It is shown that the best characteristics of the electrochemical ozone generator are observed on the PbO2 catalyst doped with Fe3+ and F ions in the amount of 3–4 and 1–2 at %, respectively.
