Synergistic Modulation in MX2 (where M = Mo or W or V, and X = S or Se) for Enhanced Hydrogen Evolution Reaction

Abstract

In order to solve the energy crisis and reduce the environmental impact of the combustion of fossil fuels, the strategy of obtaining hydrogen using hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) has high hopes. Being the promising candidates for HER catalysts, the two-dimensional (2D) layered transition metal dichalcogenides having the general formula of MX2 (where M represents Mo or W or V, and X denotes S or Se) have attracted significant attention. During the past several years, it is found that the synergistic effects were very important. According to some recent studies, reasonable synergistic modulation is beneficial for increasing the performance of HER. In this work, the contribution of synergistic modulations in MX2 materials towards HER is investigated, which is expected to play a positive role in the development of high-efficiency catalytic materials.
