A self-assembled Ni(cyclam)-BTC film was formed on ITO in an acidic solution. Ni(cyclam)-BTC exhibited an enhanced electrocatalytic property for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER), which was strongly relevant to the Ni(III)/Ni(IV) redox reaction activated by the potential dynamic process. A possible formation mechanism of Ni(cyclam)-BTC by self-assembly on ITO was also proposed.
