With increasing the energy and environmental problems, human beings are exploring ways to rely on clean and sustainable energy rather than fossil fuels. Hydrogen is a clean energy and considered as a good alternative for fossil fuels due to its valuable benefits including high energy density, high calorific value, the potential of energy storage. Electrochemical water splitting is a promising reaction for storing sustainable but intermittent energies. The critical bottleneck is its sluggish oxygen evolving reaction requiring. Transition-metal based catalysts have shown outstanding electrocatalytic performance for water splitting and especially for the oxygen evolving reaction, such as, metal carbides, metal alloys for hydrogen evolution reaction; hydroxides, metal oxides and metal organic frameworks. In recent years, metal organic framework have been extensively investigated for diverse heterogeneous catalysis due to their diversity of structures and outstanding physical and chemical properties. In this research, we are going to synthesis conductive metal organic frameworks by using different metal centers such as (Co, Ni and Fe) and two different linkers like Fumaric acid and Gallic acid. To obtain best efficiency toward oxygen evolution reaction, bimetallic frameworks will be also synthesized.
