Stainless steel as an efficient electrocatalyst for water oxidation in alkaline solution
2016 (English)In: International journal of hydrogen energy, ISSN 0360-3199, E-ISSN 1879-3487, Vol. 41, no 10, 5230-5233 p.Article in journal (Refereed) PublishedText
Commercially available 316L stainless steel was found to be a highly efficient material for catalytic water oxidation. By directly using the stainless steel as an anode without any substrate support, a 10 mA/cm(2) current density with 96% Faradaic efficiency was obtained at n = 0.37 V in alkaline solution (1 M KOH). The stainless steel film exhibits excellent longevity and a small Tafel slope of 30 mV/decade in water oxidation, making it an ideal anodic electrocatalyst. Copyright
