Hexagonal Sphericon Hematite with High Performance for Water Oxidation
MetadataShow full item record
A cost-effective hexagonal sphericon hematite with predominant (110) facets for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is demonstrated. Sequential incorporation of near-atomic uniformly distributed Ce species and Ni nanoparticles into selected sites of the hematite induces a complex synergistic integration phenomenon that enhances the overall catalytic OER performance. This cheap hexagonal sphericon hematite (Fe ≈ 98%) only needs a small overpotential (η) of 0.34 V to reach 10 mA cm−2, superior to commercial IrO2 and more expensive Co-, Ni-, and Li-based electrocatalysts.
