Because of the sluggish oxygen evolution kinetics, it is extremely important but still challenging to develop low-cost, efficient, and stable electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reaction (OER) to enhance the efficiency of water electrolysis. Herein, for the first time, we present a novel heterostructure catalyst, constructed by ultrafine NiS/Fe3O4 heterostructural nanoparticles decorated on a carbon nanotube (CNT) matrix (NiS/Fe3O4 HNPs@CNT), which is synthesized by a facile hydrothermal reaction and subsequent sulfurization process. The NiS/Fe3O4 HNPs@CNT hybrid delivers superior OER activity in alkaline medium: it delivers a current density of 10 mA cm-2 at an ultralow overpotential of 243 mV with a small Tafel slope of 44.2 mV dec-1, which outperforms the benchmark RuO2 electrocatalyst; moreover, it exhibits terrific long-term stability over 36 h without any noticeable performance decay. The exceptional OER performance can be attributed to the unique nanoarchitecture, high conductivity of the CNT matrix, and particularly, the interaction between the Ni and Fe species in NiS/Fe3O4 heterostructural nanoparticles. This work introduces a sensible nanoarchitecture design with a facile and novel fabrication strategy to attain nonprecious metal-based composite catalysts with high OER performance and outstanding long-term stability.

Abstract Hydrogen plays a significant role in clean energy, such as in fuel cells, but the energy barrier severely restricts the efficiency of the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Electrocatalysts can eliminate the energy barrier to solve energy consumption and efficiency problems. Here, hierarchical NiS2/MoS2 growing on carbon cloth (abbreviated as NiS2/MoS2-CC) is synthesized through a two-step process with bifunctional properties for both the HER and oxygen evolution reaction (OER).
