1 Herein, we report a facile and scalable immersion synthetic approach to in situ grow ultrathin nickel hydroxide nanosheets on commercial nickel foam (Ni(OH)2/NF) as an anode to electrocatalytically oxidize HMF to FDCA with complete HMF conversion, 100% FDCA yield and > 99% Faraday efficiency at 1.39 V (vs RHE) within 90 min. nickel hydroxide neurofascin Homo sapiens
2 Impressively, the synthesized Ni(OH)2/NF can also be used to electrocatalytically oxidize other alcohol/aldehyde containing compounds to the targeted products in alkaline medium with 100% yield and > 94% faradic efficiency under a low oxidation potential of 1.39 V (vs. RHE) within short reaction times. nickel hydroxide neurofascin Homo sapiens
