摘要
Non-precious-metal (NPM) catalysts often face the formidable challenge of a trade-off between long-term stability and high activity, which has not yet been widely addressed. Herein we propose a distinct molecule-selective fence as a promising concept to solve this activity-stability trade-off. The fence encloses the catalyst and prevents species poisonous to the catalyst from reaching it, but allows catalytic reaction-related species to diffuse freely. We constructed a CoS2 fence layer on the external surface of highly active cobalt-doped MoS2, achieving a remarkable catalytic stability towards the alkaline hydrogen evolution reaction and improved activity. In situ spectroscopy uncovered the underlying molecular mechanism of the CoS2 fence for breaking the activity-stability trade-off of the MoS2 catalyst. This work offers valuable guidance for rationally designing efficient and stable NPM catalysts.
