Oxygen evolution reactions (OER) are important reactions for energy conversion. Metal-free carbon-based catalysts potentially contribute to the catalytic materials for OER. However, it has been difficult to understand the intrinsic catalytic activity of carbon materials, due to catalyst decomposition over the course of long-term reactions. Here, we report high oxygen evolution reaction catalytic activity of F-doped carbon in alkaline media. Intrinsic OER activity was evaluated from a combination of measurements using a rotating disk electrode and O2 sensor. The F-doped carbon catalyst is a highly active catalyst, comparable to state-of-the-art precious-metal-based catalysts such as RuO2. View Full-Text
