Abstract: Electrocatalysts are the most compelling objectives in realizing highly efficient renewable energy conversion and storage applications. Rational doping is an effective strategy for the development of cost-effective perovskite oxides with high electrochemical performance. In this study, we report facilely prepared molybdenum (Mo)-doped SrCo0.70Fe0.30O3-δ perovskites such as SrCo0.7Fe0.25Mo0.05O3-δ (SCFM0.05) and SrCo0.7Fe0.20Mo0.10O3-δ (SCFM0.10) for boosting the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) activity and stability. Among them, SCFM0.05 delivers a promising overpotential of ∼323 mV at the current density of 10 mA cmdisk^-2 and keeps almost stable for 5 h and after accelerated 1000 cycles. The promoted HER activity of SCFM0.05 regarding the decreased overpotential, increased catalytic current density, and improved charge transfer kinetics, might originate from the combined effects of distortion of octahedral coordination, low oxygen vacancy/high oxidation state of Co, abundant lattice oxygen and highly oxidative oxygen species, long B–O length, and strong OH− adsorption compared to the un-doped counterpart. We ascribe the enhanced operational stability to the formation of a low concentration of oxygen vacancy that stabilizes the crystal structure of Mo-doped SrCo0.7Fe0.3O3-δ and prevents the surface from Sr leaching/surface amorphization. These findings suggest that tuning perovskite oxide using a redox-inactive dopant featured with high valence state may provide further avenues to HER optimization.
