- The PdNi/CNF catalyst was synthesized by facile electrospinning and carbonization processes.
- The PdNi/CNF mats were directly employed as highly efficient bifunctional catalysts for the HER and OER.
- The hybrid materials exhibited high catalytic activity and long-term stability during the HER and OER.
- We offer an effective and feasible method for generating hydrogen by water electrolysis.
Efficient bifunctional electrocatalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) must be developed to realize an inexpensive water-splitting system for large-scale applications. Herein, a novel PdNi carbon nanofiber (PdNi/CNF) catalyst was synthesized by facile electrospinning and carbonization processes. The size and homogeneity of the PdâNi alloy nanoparticles (NPs) could be effectively tuned by controlling the molar feed ratio of metal precursors .The morphology and structure of the PdNi/CNFs were characterized, and the working electrodes fabricated from the prepared catalyst mats were directly employed in the HER and OER. The PdNi/CNFs-1:2 catalyst exhibits high catalytic activity in the HER with a low overpotential of 55Â mV at a current density of 10Â mAÂ cmâ2 in an acidic solution. Moreover, under 1Â M KOH electrolyte, an overpotential of 187Â mV is required in the HER over the catalyst to arrive 10Â mAÂ cmâ2 and an overpotential of 289Â mV is achieved in the OER at the same current density. The superior HER and OER activities of the PdNi/CNFs are attributed to the synergistic effects of the PdNi alloy nanoparticles (NPs) assembled on the CNFs. This work provides a simple route for synthesizing highly efficient bifunctional electrocatalysts from 3d transition metals and a small amount of noble metals for hydrogen and oxygen evolution reactions.
