Abstract

Although the electrochemical production of hydrogen has been considered as a promising strategy to obtain the sustainable resources, the sluggish kinetics of anodic oxygen evolution reaction (OER) hindered the sustainable energy development. Herein, we design mesoporous cobalt ferrite phosphides hybridized on reduced graphene oxide (rGO) as a highly efficient bifunctional catalyst through a simple nanocasting method. The hybrid catalyst possesses the abundant interface, which provides the large active sites, as well as the hybrid rGO accelerates the electron exchange and ion diffusion. Moreover, the mesoporous structure not only prevents the aggregation of actives sites, but also benefits for the rapid escape of bubbles during catalytical process, which can significantly improve the catalytic performance. Consequently, the resulting mCo0.5Fe0.5P/rGO shows superior catalytic performance with a low overpotential of 250 mV at a current density of 10 mA cm-2 for OER and outstanding long-term stability. More importantly, an electrolyzer with mCo0.5Fe0.5P/rGO as both anode and cathode catalysts shows a low voltage of 1.66 V to afford a current density of 10 mA cm-2. This work offers a new route for designing the highly efficient OER and overall water splitting electrocatalysts. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
