Abstract

MoS2-based nanohybrids have garnered extensive research interest for enhancing chemical catalytic performance, application of biochemical sensing, and inducing phase transition of MoS2. This work presents a novel green method to prepared Ag-MoS2 and Pt-MoS2 nanohybrids through the photogenerated electrons of MoS2 nanosheets induced by using femtosecond laser pulses. Metal (Ag, Pt) nanoparticles are reduced by capturing the photogenerated electrons of MoS2, and in situ decorated on MoS2 nanosheets, thus forming Ag-MoS2 and Pt-MoS2 nanohybrids, respectively. The proposed method does not need other chemical reagents except for the metal salts necessary for supplying metal cations, which commendably avoids the introduction of reagent byproducts to the reaction mixture, toxicity, and chemical or environmental contamination. This method also emphasizes the extensive application fields of MoS2. For example, the prepared Ag-MoS2 hybrids reveal excellent surface enhanced Raman scattering performance with the enhancement factor reaching 1.32 × 107 and the detection limit low to 10-11 M; the prepared 7.6% Pt-MoS2 hybrids with C exhibit enhanced hydrogen evolution reaction activity with low Tafel slope of 25 mV/decade and high turnover frequency per exposed Mo of 11.15 H2 s-1 at 220 mV; demonstrating the remarkable prospects of MoS2-based hybrids in chemical/biological molecule sensing as well as hydrogen production applications.
