An ultrafine ruthenium nanocrystal with extremely high activity for the hydrogen evolution reaction in both acidic and alkaline media

Author affiliations

Abstract

An ultrafine ruthenium nanocrystal (RuNC) was fabricated via thermal annealing tris(2,2′-bipyridine)ruthenium dichloride with cyanuric acid. The as-obtained RuNC features a small diameter of ∼2 nm and high crystallinity. As an electrocatalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction, the ultrafine RuNC exhibited remarkable performance in both acidic and alkaline media.
