Abstract in another language

Herein an entirely new and simple room temperature synthesis of an amorphous molybdenum sulfide stabilized by complexing ammonia and hydrazine is reported. The resulting material exhibits an outstanding activity for the photocatalytic hydrogen evolution driven by visible light. It is chemically stable during the reaction conditions of the photocatalysis and shows unusual thermal stability up to 350 degrees C without crystallization. The new material is obtained by a reaction of solid ammonium tetrathiomolybdate and gaseous hydrazine. In the as-prepared state Mo atoms are surrounded by mu(2)-briding S2-, NH3 and hydrazine, the latter being coordinated to Mo(IV) in a bridging or side-on mode. Heating at 450 degrees C or irradiation with an electron beam generates nanosized crystalline MoS2 slabs. The two modes for crystallization are characterized by distinct mechanisms for crystal growth. The stacking of the slabs is low and the material exhibits a pronounced turbostratic disorder. Heat treatment at 900 degrees C yields more ordered MoS2 but structural disorder is still present. The visible-light driven hydrogen evolution experiments evidence an outstanding performance of the as-prepared sample. The materials were thoroughly characterized by optical spectroscopy, chemical analysis, in situ HRTEM, XRD, H-1 and N-15 solid-state NMR, XPS, and thermal analysis.
