Abstract Oxygen evolution reaction (OER) via electrocatalytic water splitting is crucial for efficient electrochemical energy storage and conversion. Herein, we describe the preparation of the rod-like structure of tungsten disulphide (WS2) as efficient catalysts for OER. Exfoliated tungsten disulphide was used as a source of the rods. The reshaping process required high-temperature treatment with the assistance of hydrogen and ethylene. We propose a structure with novel morphology and…
