Co/CoP Embedded in Hairy Nitrogen-Doped Carbon Polyhedron as an Advanced Tri-functional Electrocatalyst

Abstract

Design and synthesis of multi-functional electrocatalyst with low cost and high efficiency is still a great challenge. Herein, we report a rational design and realization of the tri-functional electrocatalyst featuring Co/CoP embedded in hairy Nitrogen-doped carbon polyhedral (Co/CoP-HNC) derived from a common metal organic frameworks (MOFs). The components of Co, CoP, and hairy Nitrogen-doped carbon in the catalyst, in turn, render catalytic activity, high electrochemical surface area, and electronic conductivity. The synergy of the tailored Co/CoP-HNC catalyst provides a high activity for both oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), oxygen evolution reaction (OER), and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). The catalytic performance and assembling feasibility are further demonstrated in overall water splitting and Zn-air battery, both with high efficiency and long durability.
