Abstract

Large π-conjugated conductive two-dimensional (2D) metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) via the bottom-up approach have recently emerged as novel and interesting 2D materials. For the first time, herein we demonstrate the design and successful bottom-up fabrication of a novel noble-metal-free nickel phthalocyanine-based 2D MOF (NiPc–MOF) for highly efficient water oxidation catalysis. This NiPc–MOF can be easily grown on various substrates. The thin film deposited on FTO showed high catalytic oxygen evolution reaction (OER) activity with a very low onset potential (<1.48 V, overpotential < 0.25 V), high mass activity (883.3 A g−1), and excellent catalytic durability. To the best of our knowledge, this present 2D MOF film catalyst represents the best OER catalytic activity among molecular catalyst-based materials reported so far. This work represents the first synthesis of a nickel phthalocyanine-based 2D MOF material and application of the π-conjugated 2D MOF for water oxidation.
