Co3FePx/C nanocomposites were derived from one-step phosphorization of anthraquinone-2-sulfonate (AQS2) intercalated Co3Fe layered double hydroxides (Co3Fe LDHs). The carbonized AQS2 confines Co3FePx nanoparticles in the amorphous carbon matrix during thermal treatment. Ultra-small and uniformly distributed Co3FePx/C nanoparticles in carbon exhibit excellent durability and outstanding OER catalytic activity.
