Colloidal synthesis of iridium-iron nanoparticles for electrocatalytic oxygen evolution

Abstract

The design of high-performance electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reactions (OER) in acidic condition is highly desirable for the development of proton exchange membrane (PEM)-based water electrolyzer. Herein, we report the colloidal synthesis of Iridium-iron alloy nanoparticles with an average diameter of 2.4 nm. The as-synthesized IrFe alloy produces current densities of 10 mA cm-2 in acidic and alkaline condition at overpotential of 278 and 286 mV, respectively.
