Abstract Lithium-air battery has attracted extensively attention and now developing catalysts with high electrocatalytic activity is one of the challenges for lithium-air battery. In this paper, 3D hierarchical porous spinel CoFe 2 O 4 hollow nanospheres were first prepared by a facile hydrothermal method. The hollow CoFe 2 O 4 nanospheres have unique bimodal porous structure which consists of micropores and mesopores. The catalytic activity of the CoFe 2 O 4 hollow nanospheres for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) has been studied and compared with the acetylene black, the solid CoFe 2 O 4 nanospheres and the commercial Pt/C by using rotating ring-disk electrode (RRDE) technique. The spinel CoFe 2 O 4 hollow nanospheres exhibit superior catalytic activity for the ORR compared to the acetylene black and the solid CoFe 2 O 4 nanospheres. Besides, the spinel CoFe 2 O 4 hollow nanospheres also afford high catalytic activity for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER). Furthermore, the hollow CoFe 2 O 4 nanospheres show the smallest overpotential between ORR and OER. The chronoamperometric studies show that the CoFe 2 O 4 hollow nanospheres exhibit excellent stability for both the ORR and OER. The high ORR and OER activities and stabilities of CoFe 2 O 4 hollow nanospheres could be attributed to their special 3D hierarchical porous structure. This material shows a significant potential application on lithium-air battery.
