Abstract Rational design of non-noble metal-based bifunctional electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) and oxygen evolution reactions (OER) is still a challenge in water splitting. Herein, a MOF-on-MOF (MOF = metal-organic framework) strategy is developed to obtain trimetal-based nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes arrays loaded on nickel foams (denoted as FeNiCo@NC/NF). Benefiting from the superior compositional and structural feature, FeNiCo@NC/NF self-supported electrodes exhibit ...

Abstract Exploring the low-cost and high-efficient electrocatalysts with Pt-like activity for alkaline hydrogen evolution through water splitting is imperative yet challenging. Herein, a simple synthesis combined with electrodeposition and facile electro-oxidation is developed to construct the hollow dendritic self-supported electrode (HDSE). X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS), and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) reveal that the surface of HDSE c...

Developing a scalable approach to construct efficient and multifunctional electrodes for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), oxygen evolution reaction (OER), and oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is an urgent need for overall water splitting and zinc-air batteries. In this work, a freestanding 3D heterostructure film is synthesized from a Ni-centered metal-organic framework (MOF)/graphene oxide. During the pyrolysis process, 1D carbon nanotubes formed from the MOF link with the 2D reduced graph...

Metal-air fuel cells with high energy density, eco-friendliness, and low cost bring significantly high security to future power systems. However, the impending challenges of low power density and high-current-density stability limit their widespread applications. In this study, an ultrahigh-power-density Zn-air fuel cell with robust stability is highlighted. Benefiting from the water-resistance effect of the confined nanopores, the highly active cobalt cluster electrocatalysts reside in specific...

Exploring earth-abundant and highly efficient electrocatalysts is critical for further development of water electrolyzer systems. Integrating bifunctional catalytically active sites into one multi-component might greatly improve the overall water-splitting performance. In this work, amorphous NiO nanosheets coupled with ultrafine Ni and MoO3 nanoparticles (MoO3 /Ni-NiO), which contains two heterostructures (i.e., Ni-NiO and MoO3 -NiO), is fabricated via a novel sequential electrodeposition strat...

Trifunctional electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) are crucial for many electrochemical devices. Herein, novel trifunctional electrocatalysts of a hierarchically-structured Pt/NiO/Ni/CNT with ultrasmall Pt nanoparticles (~2 nm) were synthesized via substrate-enhanced electroless deposition. The resultant catalysts exhibited even a higher ORR activity (half-wave potential at 0.942 V) than that of the benchmark ...

Abstract Besides the development of effective catalysts, surface property of the electrode is also crucial in electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution. Herein, a nanosheet array electrode of CoSx-Ni3S2/NF was designed by a facile hydrothermal process. Particularly, the obtained electrode was endowed with superhydrophilicity and superaerophobicity, which not only facilitates to the exposure of active sites, but also alleviates the “bubble shielding effect” for gas diffusion. Consequently, the nanoshee...
