Abstract

The pure MoS2 and MoS2@reduced graphene oxide were synthesized on commercially available Ti plate by one-step hydrothermal method. The hole microspheres were successfully synthesized. The resulting MoS2@reduced graphene oxide electrode on Ti plate exhibited higher catalytic activity than pure MoS2 electrode on Ti plate for hydrogen evolution reaction. In addition, the excellent cycling stability was also obtained in MoS2@reduced graphene oxide electrode on Ti plate. Such enhanced catalytic activity and excellent cycling stability occurred due to the abundance of catalytic edge sites, high specific surface area and the unique synergic effects between the MoS2 and reduced graphene oxide.
