Abstract：The layered double hydroxides become research hot spot of oxygen evolution catalyzer for its easy preparation, feasible moderation of interlayer object,low cost and good stability but due to its low transmission speed of its electric charge,higher overpotential, so the modification is needed before mass application. The constructional character of the layered twinned material was firstly introduced, the catalytic mechanism of its oxygen evolution reaction was briefly described, then different kinds of optimization modification strategies to enhance its catalytic activity were introduced. The optimization modification strategies include:combination with conductive substrate, synthesis ultrathin nanometer plate, graphene compounding process, hybrid modification. The application of the stratified dihydride oxygen evolution catalyst in electrolysis of water to hydrogen and the advantages and disadvantages of different modification methods were put forward. The better-efficient oxygen evolution catalyst can be achieved through different kinds of modification. In the end, the difficulties in this kind of catalyzer were pointed out, including low recycle rate, catalyst stability, current density not meeting the requirements of industrialization and massive production.
