Yuliang LI and colleagues from the CAS Institute of Chemistry have found a new catalyst for hydrogen production from water. They used graphdiyne and molybdenum disulfide as a catalyst and found it in alkaline media even superior to Pt/C. The high intrinsic activity was attributed to the enhanced electron transfer kinetics at the interface between eGDY and MDS, which facilitated the dissociation of the O–H bonds in water.
