The search for an efficient electrocatalyst for the oxygen-evolution reaction (OER) made of Earth-abundant elements is an ongoing challenge. New electrocatalytic systems made from non-precious metals were synthesized by modifying the layered inorganic nanomaterial zirconium phosphate (ZrP) with first-row transition metals. The direct intercalation of these metals was achieved by direct ion exchange with a hydrated phase of ZrP. A second system in which the metals are adsorbed on the surface of the ZrP nanoparticles was also examined for the OER in alkaline solution. Both systems are active for the OER; the surface adsorbed one showed better performance. View this paper
