Abstract
A rapid method for the characterization of hydrogen evolution catalysts by scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) with decreased H2 diffusion layer overlap is introduced. The double-pulsed substrate generation/tip collection (SG/TC) mode was employed by switching the substrate electrode potential between an inactive potential and an HER active potential while the tip electrode was moved to each catalyst spot and collected the H2. The optimal pulse potential and pulse width were selected using 3D COMSOL simulation. The reliability of this method was confirmed by the good agreement with the results obtained by the traditional SECM screening techniques.
