Porphyrinic Metal–Organic Framework-Templated Fe–Ni–P/Reduced Graphene Oxide for Efficient Electrocatalytic Oxygen Evolution

Porphyrinic Metal–Organic Framework-Templated Fe–Ni–P/Reduced Graphene Oxide for Efficient Electrocatalytic Oxygen Evolution
Rui Zhang, Xinzuo Fang, Hai-Long Jiang, Long Jiao
The sluggish kinetics of oxygen evolution reaction (OER) hampers the H2 production by H2O electrolysis, and it is very important for the development of highly efficient and low-priced OER catalysts. Herein, a representative metalloporphyrinic MOF, PCN-600-Ni, integrated with graphene oxide (GO), serves as an ideal precursor and template to afford bimetallic iron–nickel phosphide/reduced graphene oxide composite (denoted as Fe–Ni–P/rGO-T; T represents pyrolysis temperature) via pyrolysis and subsequent phosphidation process. Thanks to the highly porous structure, the synergetic effect of Fe and Ni elements in bimetallic phosphide, and the good conductivity endowed by rGO, the optimized Fe–Ni–P/rGO-400 exhibits remarkable OER activity in 1 M KOH solution, affording an extremely low overpotential of 240 mV at 10 mA/cm2, which is far superior to the commercial IrO2 and among the best in all non-noble metal-based electrocatalysts.
