Recent Progress on Metal-Organic Frameworks and Their Derived Materials for Electrocatalytic Overall Water Splitting
Water splitting is a great technology for aternaltive and sustaintable energy storage and conversion without pollution. In recent years, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are most promising multifuntional materials, due to tunable pore channels, high specific surface areas, easy alteration of compositions, a variety of morphological structures, and capability as precursors. Based on those merits, numerous MOFs and their derived materials are exploited for water splitting. Herein, we glean relative references in recent years about MOF-based materials for high electrocatalytic activity in water splitting and applied strategies of design and systhesis of them, along with challenges and perspectives on modulating catalytic active sites’ components and their microenvironment to enhance their water splitting performance in this review article.
