Transition metal oxide and phosphate materials, commonly used for lithium battery devices, are active as oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts under alkaline and neutral solution conditions. Electrodes comprised of LiCoO(2) and LiCoPO(4) exhibit progressive deactivation and activation for OER catalysis, respectively, upon potential cycling at neutral pH. Deactivation of LiCoO(2) and activation of LiCoPO(4) are coincident with changes in surface morphology and composition giving rise to spinel-like and amorphous surface structures respectively. The amorphous surface structure of the activated LiCoPO(4) is compositional similar to that obtained from the electrodeposition of cobalt-oxidic materials from phosphate-buffered electrolyte solutions. These results highlight the importance of a combined structural and electrochemical analysis of the materials surface when assessing the true nature of the OER catalyst.
