Abstract

Exploring active and stable photocatalysts is an essential requirement for boosting the efficiency of photocatalytic water splitting to obtain clean hydrogen fuel. Here, a few layered black phosphorus/MoS 2 (BP-MoS 2 ) nanohybrid was successfully prepared and verified it for photocatalytic hydrogen evolution using CdS nanorods as light absorbers. The resulting nanohybrids manifest remarkable catalytic performance with high amount of H 2 production (CdS/BP-MoS 2 : 183.24 mmol h –1 g –1 ) and outstanding catalytic stability. The observed amount of H 2 is much higher than that of various CdS/BP and CdS/MoS 2 based nanohybrids reported earlier. We expect that the demonstrated new heterostructured design strategy may bring novel insights to develop low-price noble metal free photocatalysts for hydrogen evolution.
