Solid‐state electrochemistry is drawing considerable interest as the interconversion of O2 and water playing an important role in energy conversion and storage technologies. With the aim of developing an efficient bifunctional catalyst by tuning the electronic properties and local structure around the 3d metal in CoWO4, solid solutions of Co1−xMnxWO4 are investigated. Nanocrystalline Co1−xMnxWO4 (x=0 to 1) phases with a unique exposure of low surface energy planes are synthesized by hydrothermal methods.
