Tuning orbital orientation endows molybdenum disulfide with exceptional alkaline hydrogen evolution capabilityTuning orbital orientation endows molybdenum disulfide with exceptional alkaline hydrogen evolution capability, Published online: 14 March 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-09210-0Technologies allowing for sustainable hydrogen production will contribute to the decarbonization of the future energy supply. Here the authors report that carbon induced orbital modulation can facilitate the otherwise inert MoS2 electrocatalyst superior alkaline hydrogen evolution reactivity.
