Design of MoS 2 /Graphene van der Waals Heterostructure as Highly Efficient and Stable Electrocatalyst for Hydrogen Evolution in Acidic and Alkaline Media

Résumé

The thermodynamically stable phase of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is evaluated as a promising and durable nonprecious-metal electrocatalyst toward the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER); however, its actual catalytic activity is restricted by an inert basal plane, low electronic conductivity, low density, and using efficiency of edged atoms. Moreover, 2D/2D van der Waals (vdws) heterostructures (HSs) with face-to-face contact can construct a highly coupled interface and are demonstrated to have immense potential for catalytic applications. In the present work, a 2D/2D hetero-layered architecture of an electrocatalyst, based on the alternate arrangement of ultrasmall monolayer MoS2 nanosheets (approximately 5–10 nm) and ultrathin graphene (G) sheets, is prepared by a facilely chemical process, which is named as MoS2/G HS. The unique structural characteristic of MoS2/G HS is in favor of accommodating more active sites as the centers of ad/desorption hydrogen and transferring and separating the charges at a coupled interface to improve the electronic conductivity and durability. The density functional theory calculation results further confirm that the alternately arranged G layers and MoS2 monolayers, as well as the expanded interplanar distance of 1.104 nm for MoS2/G HS, can exhibit a superior HER performance in both 0.5 M H2SO4 and 1.0 M KOH.
