Carbon Supports Mitigate Resistivity Limitations in Ni-Mo Alkaline Hydrogen Evolution Electrocatalysts

We have studied the composition and morphology of Ni-Mo alloys. These alloys consist of a Ni-rich core surrounded by Mo-rich oxide layer. The HER activity of Ni-Mo alloys was seen to be limited by interfacial resistance rather than kinetic and solution transport. Vulcan carbon, a conductive support mitigate the resistive limitations by providing conductive percolation networks.
