Ultrafast synthesis of molybdenum carbide nanoparticles for efficient hydrogen generation
A facile and ultrafast synthesis of molybdenum carbide coated with few-layer carbon (MoC/C) has been developed, and the effect of reducing the thickness of the carbon coating on its catalytic activity in the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) has been demonstrated. MoC/C produces a current density of 20 mA cm−2 at an overpotential of 144 mV and a Tafel slope of 63.6 mV dec−1 in 0.5 M H2SO4, and works stably under long-term electrolysis. MoC/C is one of the most active carbide electrocatalysts...[Show more]
