The efficient removal of gas bubbles is essential to reduce the reaction overpotential and improve the electrode stability in the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). To address this challenge, the current study combines hydrophilic functionalized poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) with colloidal lithography to create superaerophobic electrode surfaces. The fabrication process involves the use of polystyrene (PS) beads with varying sizes (100, 200, and 500 nm) as hard templates and the electropolymerization of EDOTs with hydroxymethyl (EDOT-OH) and sulfonate (EDOT-SuNa) functional groups. The surface properties and HER performances of the electrodes are investigated. The electrode modified with poly(EDOT-SuNa) and 200 nm PS beads (SuNa/Ni/Au-200) exhibits the best hydrophilicity with a water contact angle of 37°. Moreover, the overpotential required at −10 mA cm–2 is substantially reduced from −388 mV (flat Ni/Au) to −273 mV (SuNa/Ni/Au-200). This approach is further applied to commercially available nickel foam electrodes, showing improved HER activity and electrode stability. These results highlight the potential for promoting catalytic efficiency by constructing a superaerophobic electrode surface.
