AbstractCo phosphides, although highly active for the hydrogen evolution electrocatalysis in acids, still deliver inferior performance in alkalis, limiting their application in alkaline water electrolysis. Building an effective Co phosphide/(hydroxide) oxide interface could be a viable way to improve the hydrogen evolution activity of Co phosphide catalysts under alkaline conditions, which however remains unexplored and challenging. In this communication, we report the facile development of a CoP-CeO2 hybrid nanosheet film on Ti mesh (CoP-CeO2/Ti) from easily made Co3O4-CeO2 via a selective phosphidation strategy. In 1.0 M KOH, such CoP-CeO2/Ti achieves a geometrical catalytic current density of 10 mA cm(-2) at a pretty low overpotential of 43 mV, 27 mV less than that for CoP/Ti. Remarkably, our CoP-CeO2/Ti also shows superior durability over CoP/Ti, suggesting that CeO2 greatly stabilizes the CoP catalyst. Density functional theory calculations demonstrate that CoP-CeO2 possesses a lower water dissociation free energy and a more optimal hydrogen adsorption free energy than CoP. This selective phosphidation strategy is universal in engineering the transition metal phosphide/oxide interface for applications.
