As a typical transition-metal dichalcogenides, MoS2 has been a hotspot of research in many fields. In this work, the MoS2 nanosheets were compounded on 1T-VS2 nanoflowers (VS2@MoS2) successfully by a two-step hydrothermal method for the first time, and their hydrogen evolution properties were studied mainly. The higher charge-transfer efficiency benefiting from the metallicity of VS2 and the greater activity due to more exposed active edge sites of MoS2 improve the hydrogen evolution reaction… CONTINUE READING
