Abstract

Ultrasmall and monodisperse sulfur nanoparticle (S-NP) intercalated CoAl-layered double hydroxide (CoAl-LDH) electrocatalyst exhibits an excellent electrocatalytic activity towards water oxidation with a low overpotential of 250 mV at a high current density of 7.9 mA cm−2 and a Tafel slope of 61 mV dec−1 at the neutral pH condition. The fabrication strategy to achieve a high-performance, robust and durable electrocatalyst is a scale-up in next generation renewable energy fields.
