A Simple Way to Finely Tune the Redox Potentials of Cobalt Ions Encapsulated in Nitrogen Doped Graphene Molecular Catalysts for Oxygen Evolution Reaction  


Abstract:Co2+ ions encapsulated in nitrogen doped graphene was applied as oxygen evolution catalyst. Their redox potentials were tuned using different counter anions as liable ligands, and the redox potentials related  catalytic  rates  were  explored.  It  was  proposed  that the electron density of Co2+ ions was a general descriptor for activity.
