Highly Efficient Iron Diselenide Electrocatalyst for Overall Water Splitting

New hot paper of Matthias Driess and coworkesrs in Angewandte Chemie: A highly active iron diselenide electrocatalyst was prepared at low temperature from a bioinspired 2Fe-2Se molecular complex. The catalyst was applied to bifunctional oxygen and hydrogen evolution reactions, as well as overall water splitting. The nature of active sites and structure–activity relationships of the electrocatalyst were uncovered.
