We report that the oxygen evolution reaction activity of nickel foam can be enhanced remarkably via only simple immersion in a ferric nitrate solution at room temperature. We demonstrate that the oxidation of the nickel foam surface by nitrate ions can increase the near-surface concentrations of OH and Ni2+ ions, which results in the in situ deposition of a highly active amorphous Ni-Fe hydroxide layer.

WS2 nanowire-nanoflake hybrids show excellent response to H2S gas, with a sensitivity of 0.043 ppm-1 and a detection limit of 20 ppm. The sensing mechanism is governed not only by the charge transfer/localization of the adsorbed gas but also by the competitive access of O and S to the anionic sites of the WS2 lattice, which control the electrical behavior of the hybrid material.

The analysis reveals that the oriented growth of 1T-phase MoS2 is controlled by a process involving ammonia-assisted assembly, recrystallization, and stabilization steps. The superior HER performance observed for this system has its origin in its unique array structure with well-dispersed, edge-terminated, and high-purity 1T-phase MoS2 nanosheets.
