Herein, we first propose a facile strategy to synthesize Co9S8 and MoS2 nanocrystals embedded in porous carbon nanoflake arrays supported on carbon nanofibers (Co9S8-MoS2/N-CNAs@CNFs) by the pyrolysis of Mo-doped Zn, Co zeolitic-imidazolate framework grown on carbon nanofibers and subsequent sulfuration. The electrocatalyst shows high and stable electrocatalytic performance, with half-wave potential of 0.82 V for ORR and overpotential at 10 mA cm-2 for OER (0.34 V) and HER (0.163 V), which outperform the metal-organic frameworks-derived transition metal sulfide catalysts reported so far. Furthermore, the Co9S8-MoS2@N-CNAs@CNFs are employed as an air cathode in a liquid-state and all-solid-state zinc-air battery, presenting high power density of 222 mW cm-2 and 96 mW cm-2, respectively. Such excellent catalytic activities are mainly owing to the unique three-dimensional structure and chemical compositions, optimal electronic conductivity, adequate surface area and the abundance of active sites. Thus, this work provides an important method for designing other metal-organic frameworks derived three-dimensional structural sulfide quantum dot multifunctional electrocatalyst for wider application in highly efficient catalysis and energy storage.
