Abstract

We report the successful synthesis of Mn doped CoN nanowires on a carbon fiber cloth substrate (CFC) by a two-step strategy, which can be used as an efficient and stable OER electrocatalyst under both alkaline and neutral conditions. Benefiting from enhanced electronic interaction, high active area and electrical conductivity, the Mn doped CoN nanowires/CFC exhibits enhanced kinetics and improved cycling stability for the OER under both alkaline and neutral conditions. To achieve a current density of 10 mA cm−2, the Mn doped CoN nanowires/CFC requires an overpotential of 265 mV in alkaline solution and 285 mV in neutral solution.
