Single-layer MoS2 as an efficient photocatalyst
2013 (English)In: Catalysis Science and Technology, ISSN 2044-4753, Vol. 3, no 9, 2214-2220 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The potential application of the single-layer MoS2 as a photocatalyst was revealed based on first-principles calculations. It is found that the pristine single-layer MoS2 is a good candidate for hydrogen production, and its catalysing ability can be tuned by the applied mechanical strain. Furthermore, the p-type doping could make the single layer a good photocatalyst for the overall water splitting.
