Chemistry. 2016 Nov 10. doi: 10.1002/chem.201603085. [Epub ahead of print]Two electrodes for anodic water oxidation made by direct synthesis of inorganic catalysts onto conductive carbon fibre sheets are evaluated. As catalysts two Co- and Sb-containing phases were tested, that is, Co3 Sb4 O6 F6 and the new compound CoSbO4 . The compounds express large differences in their morphology: CoSbO4 grows as thin needles whereas Co3 Sb4 O6 F6 grows as larger facetted crystals. Despite the smaller surface area the latter compound shows a better catalytic performance. Read More
