Water splitting carried out upon usage of sulfuric acid in which hematite was suspended at high concentration was shown for the first time. Remarkably: the ultralow OER overpotential of a few tens of millivolt, the very low cell voltage and the negligible mass loss of the anode that solely consists of non-noble elements.
