dc.description.abstractElectrochemical water splitting is one of the most promising ways for clean hydrogen energy production. Along with using earth-abundant, atomically engineered catalysts that are highly active and stable, clean, chemical-waste-free catalyst production—using minimum resources—is a major hurdle toward achieving zero-carbon-emission commercial operations. Herein, we propose a clean way to fabricate NiSe2–CoSe2 on nickel–cobalt foam (NCF) using pure water for the in situ sprouting of NiCo layered double hydroxide (LDH) precursors. The excellent electrocatalytic activity for overall water splitting in alkaline electrolytes is highlighted by the overpotentials of NiSe2–CoSe2/NCF for delivering current densities of 10 and 400 mA cm−2 (j10 and j400, respectively) at only 24 and 257 mV for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and 250 and 346 mV for oxygen evolution reaction (OER), as well as the fast reaction kinetics affording small Tafel slope values of 24 (HER) and 48 (OER) mV dec−1, respectively. NiSe2–CoSe2/NCF exhibits excellent electrocatalytic performance and structural stability, evidenced by the unchanged polarization curve after 104 cycles of CV tests and low decay of high current density (j100) after 100 h of HER and OER measurements. Theoretical analysis revealed that the Co atoms dispersed on the heterointerfaces between the NiSe2 and CoSe2 phases act as the electrocatalytic sites.
