Recent developments of molybdenum and tungsten sulfides as hydrogen evolution catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recent work shows that nanoparticulate and amorphous molybdenum and tungsten sulfide materials are active catalysts for hydrogen evolution in aqueous solution. These materials hold promise for applications in clean hydrogen production technologies. In this perspective, the syntheses, structures and catalytic activities of nanoparticulate MoS2 and WS2, incomplete cubane-type [Mo3S4]4+ and amorphous MoSx films are summarized, compared, and discussed.
