Finding an efficient and low-cost electrocatalyst is very important for advancing oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), possessing catalytic activities, excellent structural variety and high surface areas was recently demonstrated a great catalyst for electrolytic water splitting. In this work, MIL-100 (Fe) as a type of nanoporous metal organic framework (MOF) was synthesized and then carbonized (C-MIL-100 (Fe)). MIL-100 (Fe) are fabricated via an aqueous solution reaction at room temperature. At first, the MIL-100 (Fe) and C-MIL-100 (Fe) were characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Then, the electrocatalytic function of MIL-100(Fe) before and after carbonization has been compared by electrochemical tests. The effect of carbonization was investigated on the electrocatalytic performance of MIL-100 (Fe) in alkaline solution. The C-MIL-100 (Fe) improve HER performance in terms of an onset potential of 0.03V vs. RHE and an overpotential of -420 mV at 10 mAcm⁻², but carbonization can’t improve MIL-100 (Fe) performance for OER.
