[en] Highlights: • Highly dispersed Pt nanoparticles in nitrogen-doped hollow porous carbon are synthesized. • The sample displays superior catalytic activity in hydrogen evolution reaction. • The sample exhibits outstanding catalytic durability and stability. The hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is a promising alternative method of producing clean and renewable hydrogen resources. Although Pt-based nanomaterials are the most efficient catalysts for HER, their poor stability and durability strongly impede their practical application. In this study, we report a new, efficient strategy to fabricate highly dispersed Pt nanoparticles within unique nitrogen-doped hollow porous carbon polyhedrons ([email protected]) derived from polymer coated metal-organic frameworks. [email protected] displays enhanced HER activity compared to commercial Pt/C. Most importantly, [email protected] exhibits excellent stability and durability, showing no nanostructure change and negligible activity decrease after 5000 potential cycles. The outstanding HER performance of [email protected] can be attributed to its unique structural features including highly dispersed Pt, nitrogen-doping, large surface area, hollow nanostructure and hierarchical pore system.
