Abstract

original image

On HER majesty′s secret service: A carbonaceous material that was based on pyrolyzed cobalt phthalocyanine showed catalytic activity for the hydrogen-evolution reaction (HER) in aqueous acidic electrolytes and functioned as a H+-reduction catalyst in a convenient, safe, all-solid-state water electrolyzer by using a perfluorosulfonate ion-exchange polymer membrane.
