Abstract
Transition metal layered double hydroxides (LDHs) have received much attention as high-performance oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts due to their large number of active sites with favorable adsorption/desorption energies for intermittent reactants. However, the relatively sluggish charge transfer kinetics of transition metal LDHs due to their intrinsically low conductivity often hinders their use in practical applications as highperformance water oxidation catalysts. Here, we disclose a novel strategy of metalloid incorporation into transition metal LDHs, allowing us to simultaneously optimize surface electronic configuration and charge transfer between adsorbed reactants and catalyst surface. Importantly, incorporated metalloid can enhance the density of states (DOS) near the Fermi level and alter the nature of the chemical bonds in the catalytically active atoms, resulting in fast reaction kinetics. Thus, metalloid incorporation into transition metal LDHs can substantially improve the overall reaction kinetics and thermodynamics for water oxidation due to a large number of active sites and high conductivity, boosting OER performance of transition metal LDHs. The metalloid-incorporated transition metal LDHs far outperform their counterpart transition metal LDHs and even the noble metal catalyst RuO2.
