Abstract

This short review analyzes the catalytic activity of nanostructured molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). The phase transition of nanostructured MoS2 semiconductor from 2H (hexagonal) to 1T (trigonal) leads to a metal-like material through so-called surface defect engineering by chemical exfoliation. The 1T phase was found to be active for the electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Various key aspects vis-à-vis the MoS2 synthesis, characterization, support interaction, and application are, herein, highlighted.
