Abstract [en]

Replacing rare and expensive noble-metal catalysts with inexpensive and earth-abundant ones is of great importance to split water either electrochemically or photoelectrochemically. In this study, two amorphous cobalt oxide catalysts (Co-W film and Co-Mo film) with high activity for electrocatalytic water oxidation were prepared by fast, simple electrodeposition from aqueous solutions of Na<inf>2</inf>WO<inf>4</inf> and Na<inf>2</inf>MoO<inf>4</inf> containing Co2+. In solutions of Na<inf>2</inf>WO<inf>4</inf> and Na<inf>2</inf>MoO<inf>4</inf>, sustained anodic current densities up to 1.45 and 0.95mA cm-2 were obtained for Co-W film at 1.87V versus a reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE) and Co-Mo film on fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) substrates at 1.85V versus RHE. For the Co-W film, a much higher current density of 4.5mA cm-2 was acquired by using a stainless-steel mesh as the electrode substrate. Significantly, in long-term electrolysis for 13h, the Co-W film exhibited improved stability in cobalt-free buffer solution in comparison with the previously reported Co-Pi film.
