Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Porphyrin-based NiFe porous organic polymers (POPs) have been synthesized with good porosity and large BET surface areas (261 to 313 m2 g−1). These bimetallic POPs exhibit RuO2-like OER activity, with the reaction for catalyst FeTAPP-NiTCPP-POP reaching a current density of 10 mA cm−2 at a low overpotential of 338 mV and with a small Tafel slope of 52 mV dec−1. FeTAPP-NiTCPP-POP was stable over a long period under reaction conditions. These bimetallic POPs exhibit better catalytic activity than their monometallic counterparts, due to synergetic interactions between the iron and nickel centers to facilitate the electrocatalytic process.
