In the present paper, we investigate the effect of plasmonic Au nanoparticles (NPs) decoration on the photocatalytic efficiency of MoS$_2$ nanosheets. The Au NPs are grown on the surface of chemically exfoliated MoS$_2$ nanosheets by chemical reduction method. Au-MoS$_2$ nanostructures (NSs) are characterized by X-ray diffractometer, Raman spectrometer, absorption spectrophotometer, and transmission electron microscopy. Exfoliated MoS$_2$ and Au-MoS$_2$ NSs are used to study the photocatalytic…
