The reaction of bis(phenanthroline)metal(ii) cations (M = Mn(2+), Co(2+), Ni(2+), Cu(2+) and Zn(2+)) with bis(oxalato)chromium(iii) anions in a water/ethanol solution gives rise to a series of compounds with oxalate-bridged cations, [{M(phen)2}2(μ-C2O4)][Cr(phen)(C2O4)2]2·4H2O [Mn2Cr2 (1), Co2Cr2 (2), Ni2Cr2 (3), Cu2Cr2 (4) and Zn2Cr2 (5)]. Their structural analysis reveals that all the prepared compounds crystallize in the triclinic system, space group P1[combining macron], having similar unit cell parameters, molecular structures and crystal packing features...

The development of low-cost hybrid water splitting-biosynthetic systems that mimic natural photosynthesis to achieve solar-to-chemical conversion is of great promise for future energy demands, but often limited by the kinetically sluggish hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) on the surface of nonprecious transition metal catalysts in neutral media. It is thus highly desirable to rationally tailor the reaction interface to boost the neutral HER catalytic kinetics. Herein, we report a general surface nitrogen modification of diverse transition metals (e...

Surficial defects in semiconductor can induce high density of carriers and cause localized surface plasmon resonance which is prone to light harvesting and energy conversion, while internal defects may cause serious recombination of electrons and holes. Thus, it is significant to precisely control the distribution of defects, although there are few successful examples. Herein, an effective strategy to confine abundant defects within the surface layer of Cu1.94 S nanoflake arrays (NFAs) is reported, leaving a perfect internal structure...

The development of low-cost, stable bifunctional electrocatalysts, which operate in the same electrolyte with a low overpotential for water splitting, including the oxygen evolution reaction and the hydrogen evolution reaction, remains an attractive prospect and a great challenge. In this study, a water soluble Robson-type macrocyclic dicopper(ii) complex has been used for the first time as a catalyst precursor for the generation of a copper-based bifunctional heterogeneous catalyst film, which can be used for both HER and OER at a near neutral pH...

The present work is focused on the protective-agent-free synthesis of interconnected copper cobaltite (Cu0.3Co2.7O4) nanochains by temperature-controlled solvothermal method followed by post-thermal treatment of the precursors. Furthermore, Cu0.3Co2.7O4 interconnected nanochains are employed as electrocatalyst for water oxidation in alkaline medium for the first time. Extensive studies of physiochemical properties showed the formation of interconnected 1D nanochains of Cu0.3Co2.7O4 exhibiting a larger specific surface area (139...

New electrochemical synthesis methods were developed to produce copper hydroxy double salt(Cu-HDS) films with four different intercalated anions (NO3(-), SO4(2-), Cl(-), and dodecyl sulfate (DS)) as pure crystalline films as deposited (Cu2NO3(OH)3, Cu4SO4(OH)6, Cu2Cl(OH)3, and Cu2DS(OH)3). These methods are based on p-benzoquinone reduction, which increases the local pH at the working electrode and triggers the precipitation of Cu(2+) and appropriate anions as Cu-HDS films on the working electrode. The resulting Cu-HDS films could be converted to crystalline Cu(OH)2 and CuO films by immersing them in basic solutions...

Developing noble metal-free water oxidation catalysts is essential for many energy conversion/storage processes (e.g., water splitting). Herein, we report a facile synthesis of CuO microspheres composed of ultrathin, single-crystal-like nanosheets via a simple solution method. The as-obtained CuO microspheres can serve as an active and stable water oxidation catalyst under electrochemical reaction conditions, owing to their unique structural features. In electrochemical water oxidation, this catalyst affords a current density of 10 mA cm(-2) (a value related to practical relevance) at an overpotential of ∼0...

We performed a density functional theory (DFT) investigation of the molecular and dissociative adsorption of H2O and H2S at perfect and defective Cu(110) surfaces described using supercells with c(6 × 6) periodicity. The defective surface consists of a terrace surrounded by pits. We found considerable differences in adsorption modes and energies for H2O and H2S. At the defective Cu(110) surface, monomers of H2O and H2S preferentially adsorb at the terrace site and molecular adsorption of H2O is significantly more favorable than that of H2S...

Electrochemical splitting of water to produce oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2) through a cathodic hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and an anodic oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is a promising green approach for sustainable energy supply. Here we demonstrated a porous nickel-copper phosphide (NiCuP) nano-foam as a bifunctional electrocatalyst for highly efficient total water splitting. Prepared from a bubble-templated electrodeposition method and subsequent low-temperature phosphidization, NiCuP has a hierarchical pore structure with a large electrochemical active surface area...

Superefficient water-splitting materials comprising sub-nanometric copper clusters and quasi-amorphous cobalt sulfide supported on copper foam are reported. While working together at both the anode and cathode sides of an alkaline electrolyzer, this material gives a catalytic output of overall water splitting comparable with the Pt/C-IrO2 -coupled electrolyzer.

Water splitting is of paramount importance for exploiting renewable energy-conversion and -storage systems, but is greatly hindered by the kinetically sluggish oxygen evolution reaction (OER). In this work, a three-dimensional, highly efficient, and durable NiFe/Cu2 O nanowires/Cu foam anode (NiFe/Cu2 O NWs/CF) for water oxidation in 1.0 m KOH was developed. The obtained electrode exhibited a current density of 10 mA cm(-2) at a uniquely low overpotential of η=215 mV. The average specific current density (js ) was estimated, on the basis of the electrocatalytically active surface area, to be 0...

Thanks to their versatile functionality, metal oxides (MOs) constitute one of the key family materials in a variety of current demands for sensor, catalysis, energy storage and conversion, optical electronics, and piezoelectric mechanics. Much effort has focused on engineering specific nanostructure and macroscopic morphology of MOs that aims to enhance their performances, but the design and controlled synthesis of ultrafine nanostructured MOs in a cost-effective and facile way remains a challenge. In this work, we have exploited the advantages of intrinsic structures of graphene oxide (GO) papers, serving as a sacrificial template, to design and synthesize two-dimensional (2D) layered and free-standing MO papers with ultrafine nanostructures...

As an important class of heterocyclic compounds, 1,3,4-thiadiazoles have a broad range of potential applications in medicine, agriculture and materials chemistry, and were found to be excellent precursors for the crystal engineering of organometallic materials. The coordinating behaviour of allyl derivatives of 1,3,4-thiadiazoles with respect to transition metal ions has been little studied. Five new crystalline copper(I) π-complexes have been obtained by means of an alternating current electrochemical technique and have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and IR spectroscopy...

A general and simple route to fabricate graphdiyne nanowalls on arbitrary substrates is developed by using a copper envelope catalysis strategy. The GDY/BiVO4 system is but one example of combing the unique properites of GDY with those target substrates where GDY improves the photoelectrochemical performance dramatically.

Hydrogen is essential to many industrial processes and could play an important role as an ideal clean energy carrier for future energy supply. Herein, we report for the first time the growth of crystalline Cu3P phosphide nanosheets on conductive nickel foam (Cu3P@NF) for electrocatalytic and visible light-driven overall water splitting. Our results show that the Cu3P@NF electrode can be used as an efficient Janus catalyst for both the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER)...

One-dimensional core-shell nanowire materials have recently received great attention as durable catalysts for water splitting. Herein we report the facile and rapid synthesis of ultralong Fe(OH)3:Cu(OH)2 core-shell nanowires grown in situ on an open 3D electrode to function as a highly efficient electrocatalyst for water oxidation. It only requires an overpotential of ∼365 mV to reach a 10 mA cm(-2) current density in 1.0 M KOH. As far as we know, this shows the best result amongst Cu-based heterogeneous OER systems reported to date...

Tuning the electronic structure of metal-organic frameworks is the key to extending their functionality to the photocatalytic conversion of absorbed gases. Herein we discuss how the band edge positions in zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) can be tuned by mixing different imidazole-based linkers within the same structure. We present the band alignment for a number of known and hypothetical Zn-based ZIFs with respect to the vacuum level. Structures with a single type of linker exhibit relatively wide band gaps; however, by mixing linkers of a low-lying conduction edge with linkers of a high-lying valence edge, we can predict materials with ideal band positions for visible-light water splitting and CO2 reduction photocatalysis...

Solar powered hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is one of the key reactions in solar-to-chemical energy conversion. It is desirable to develop photocathodic materials that exhibit high activity toward photoelectrochemical (PEC) HER at more positive potentials because a higher potential means a lower overpotential for HER. In this work, the Cu2O/CuO bilayered composites were prepared by a facile method that involved an electrodeposition and a subsequent thermal oxidation. The resulting Cu2O/CuO bilayered composites exhibited a surprisingly high activity and good stability toward PEC HER, expecially at high potentials in alkaline solution...

Scalable and robust catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) are required for the implementation of water splitting technologies as a globally applicable method of producing renewable hydrogen. Herein, we report nitrogen-enriched porous carbon materials containing copper/copper oxide, derived from copper porphyrin-based conjugated mesoporous polymers (CMPs), as a bifunctional catalyst for both HER and OER. These catalysts have a high surface area, unique tubular structure, and strong synergistic effect of copper/copper oxide and porous carbons, resulting in excellent performance for water splitting...

Light-driven water splitting is one of the most promising approaches for using solar energy in light of more sustainable development. In this paper, a highly efficient p-type copper(II) oxide photocathode is studied. The material, prepared by thermal treatment of CuI nanoparticles, is initially partially reduced upon working conditions and soon reaches a stable form. Upon visible-light illumination, the material yields a photocurrent of 1.3 mA cm(-2) at a potential of 0.2 V vs a reversible hydrogen electrode at mild pH under illumination by AM 1...
