Metallic Transition-Metal Dichalcogenide Nanocatalysts for Energy Conversion


Electrochemical or photoelectrochemical water splitting is an environmentally friendly technology for H2 production to replace fossil fuels for industrial and social utilization of energy. Metallic transition-metal dichalcogenide (TMDC) nanomaterials are significantly promising for applications in practical catalysis of water splitting to replace state-of-the-art noble-metal-based catalysts. High intrinsic activity and remarkable conductivity are the main advantages of these materials. Structural and compositional design can also be used to improve the catalytic performance.
