Research Topic

Controllable synthesis of highly effective catalyst for photoelectrocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction


In accommodating the rapid development of two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) has become a powerful tool for their batch production with desirable characteristics, such as high crystal quality, large domain size, and tunable domain shape. These excellent properties can be well developed in multiple fields, such as energy storage, environmental catalysis.
Here this project aims at fabricating a ternary-phase system composed of Molybdenum, Vanadium and Sulfur with low-pressure CVD method, which has been demonstrated as a potential promising catalyst system in Hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Further the relationship between the properties and morphology of as-grown materials and the catalytic performance will be addressed.
