摘要:

The development of nonprecious metal based electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) has received increasing attention over recent years. Previous studies have established Mo2C as a promising candidate. Nevertheless, its preparation requires high reaction temperature, which more than often causes particle sintering and results in low surface areas. In this study, we show supporting Mo2C nanoparticles on the three-dimensional scaffold as a possible solution to this challenge and develop a facile two-step preparation method for ~3 nm Mo2C nanoparticles uniformly dispersed on carbon microflowers (Mo2C/NCF) via the self-polymerization of dopamine. The resulting hybrid material possesses large surface areas and a fully open and accessible structure with hierarchical order at different levels. MoO42- was found to play an important role in inducing the formation of this morphology presumably via its strong chelating interaction with the catechol groups of dopamine. Our electrochemical evaluation demonstrates that Mo2C/NCF exhibits excellent HER electrocatalytic performance with low onset overpotentials, small Tafel slopes, and excellent cycling stability in both acidic and alkaline solutions.
