Abstract

The thermal reduced graphene oxide deposition on nickel foam was successfully synthesized by ultrasonic and subsequent thermal reduction process. Ultrathin mesoporous Ni 3 S 2 was formed on the bare nickel foam after hydrothermal process, while Ni 3 S 2 nanotube arrays were formed on the surface of nickel foam with the thermal reduced graphene oxide due to catalysis action of thermal reduced graphene oxide. The resulting Ni 3 S 2 nanotube arrays exhibited higher catalytic activity than ultrathin mesoporous Ni 3 S 2 for hydrogen evolution reaction. In addition, and excellent stability was also obtained in Ni 3 S 2 nanotube arrays.
