Abstract

IntroductionSemiconductors have drawn much attention in photodegradation of organic compounds, hydrogen storage, and photocatalytic water splitting for hydrogen production. However, the development of photocatalytic industry is restricted by the development of photocatalysts. An ideal catalyst for hydrogen photoproduction by splitting water must have suitable band‐gap and band edge positions, i.e., it should own a band‐gap around 2.0 eV with its valence band maximum (VBM) and conduction band minimum (CBM) straddling the water oxidation and reduction potentials. During the past 40 years, a lot of semiconductors, such as TiO2, SrTiO3, NaTaO3, KNbO3, NaNbO3, etc., have been considered as photocatalysts to split water for hydrogen production, but most of them can only utilize ultraviolet light which accounts for only 4% of the solar energy. Therefore, searching for suitable photocatalysts with band‐gaps around 2.0 eV to further improve solar energy utilization efficiency through making use of visible light accounting for 43% of the solar energy is still full of challenge.As a transition metal dichalogenide, MoS2 has been fabricated and extensively investigated because it is abundant in nature and cheap. The electronic properties of MoS2 strongly depend on the layer thickness and MoS2 is a layered hexagonal structure with S‐Mo‐S layers stacked together through weak
