[ASAP] Efficient Electrocatalytic Proton Reduction with Carbon Nanotube-Supported Metal–Organic Frameworks

[ASAP] Efficient Electrocatalytic Proton Reduction with Carbon Nanotube-Supported Metal–Organic Frameworks
Daniel Micheroni, Guangxu Lan, Wenbin Lin
Hydrogen production from Earth-abundant catalysts remains an important but difficult challenge. Here we report the growth of Hf12-porphyrin metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for electrocatalytic proton reduction. Covalent attachment of MOF nanoplates to conductive CNTs improves electron transfer from the electrode to Co-porphyrin active sites, which leads to effective proton reduction via protonation of a CoI–H intermediate. The Hf12–CoDBP/CNT assembly afforded a turnover number of 32 000 in 30 min with a turnover frequency of 17.7 S–1, placing it among the most active Co-based molecular electrocatalysts.
