Green Hydrogen will be one of the key resources of the future. But it will only become competitive to fossil energy sources when the production cost will be reduced. For this reason, the aim of my research is the development of electrochemical catalysts based on nickel for the alkaline water splitting. Nickel is a promising candidate for the electrochemical water splitting due to the high stability in alkaline media. But the activity must be increased by nickel-based compounds like ferrites or MOFs to be able to compete with noble metal catalysts.
