Title: Direct growth of ternary Ni–Fe–P porous nanorods onto nickel foam as a highly active, robust bi-functional electrocatalyst for overall water splitting

Abstract

Porous ternary Ni–Fe phosphide nanorods directly grown onto commercial nickel foam exhibit high catalytic activities toward both HER and OER in 1 M KOH alkaline solution.
