Abstract

The ampoule method provides a promising pathway towards the controllable synthesis of novel electrocatalysts for water electrolysis due to its straightforward manipulation of reaction conditions, accessible experimental design, and controlled environment. This Concept introduces the development of the ampoule method and anticipates its application in electrocatalyst synthesis for water electrolysis. First, the history, device configuration, and merits of the ampoule method are briefly introduced. Afterwards, typical materials synthesized by the ampoule method are discussed. Then, recent process in applying the ampoule method to synthesize electrocatalysts for water electrolysis is highlighted. Finally, opportunities and potentials of this method in facilitating electrocatalyst synthesis for water electrolysis are discussed.
