Abstract: Cost-effective and stable electrocatalysts with ultra-high current densities for electrochemical oxygen evolution reaction (OER) are critical to the energy crisis and environmental pollution. Herein, we report a superaerophobic three dimensional (3D) heterostructured nanowrinkles of bimetallic selenides consisting of crystalline NiSe2 and NiFe2Se4 grown on NiFe alloy (NiSe2/NiFe2Se4@NiFe) prepared by a thermal selenization procedure. In this unique 3D heterostructure, numerous nanowrinkles of NiSe2/NiFe2Se4 hybrid with a thickness of ~ 100 nm are grown on NiFe alloy in a uniform manner. Profiting by the large active surface area and high electronic conductivity, the superaerophobic NiSe2/NiFe2Se4@NiFe heterostructure exhibits excellent electrocatalytic activity and durability towards OER in alkaline media, outputting the low potentials of 1.53 and 1.54 V to achieve ultra-high current densities of 500 and 1000 mA cm−2, respectively, which is among the most active Ni/Fe-based selenides, and even superior to the benchmark Ir/C catalyst. The in-situ derived FeOOH and NiOOH species from NiSe2/NiFe2Se4@NiFe are deemed to be efficient active sites for OER.
