Advances and Challenges of MOF Derived Carbon-based Electrocatalysts and Photocatalyst for Water Splitting: A Review


Environmental pollution and energy shortage are substantial fears to the modern world's long-term sustainability. Water splitting is an essential technique for eco - friendly and sustainable energy storage, as well as a pollution-free method to produce hydrogen. In this regards Metal–organic frameworks have emerged as the most competent multifunctional materials in recent times, due to its large surface areas, adjustable permeability, easy compositional alteration, and capability for usage as precursors with a wide range of morphological forms. Further, MOF-derived carbon-based nanomaterials also offer significant benefits in terms of tunable morphological features and hierarchical permeability, as well as ease of functionalization, making them extremely effective as catalysts or catalysts supports for a wide variety of important reactions. Recent developments in carbon-based MOFs as catalysts for overall water splitting are discussed in this review. We explore how MOFs and carbon-based MOFs might well be beneficial, as well as which methods should be explored for future development. We divided our review into two sections: photocatalytic and electrocatalytic water splitting, and we gathered published literature on carbon-based MOFs materials for their outstanding activity, offers helpful methods for catalysts design and analysis, as well as difficulties This study highlights the developments in MOF derived materials as photo and electro catalysts by explaining respective approaches for their use in overall water splitting.
