Title: Hierarchical CoP/Ni 5 P 4 /CoP microsheet arrays as a robust pH-universal electrocatalyst for efficient hydrogen generation

Abstract

Exceptional Pt-like electrocatalytic activity was achieved in a sandwich-like catalyst of CoP/Ni 5 P 4 /CoP microsheet arrays for pH-universal hydrogen evolution through simply wrapping Ni 5 P 4 nanosheet arrays in CoP nanoparticles.
