Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a transition metal chalcogenide material widely used in photocatalysis, synthesis catalyst, hydrodesulfurization, hydrodeoxygenation, electronic, optical, mechanical, even in hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). The morphology-controlled preparation of MoS2 is currently highly topical. Many preparation routes have been developed for synthesis of nanometer MoS2 over the last decades, and MoS2 nano-materials with different morphologies, particle sizes, and porous features can be obtained from different raw materials through different pathways. However, the morphology and crystal size of MoS2 was uncontrolled and the properties of the obtained material were variable.
Morphologies of porous molybdenum disulfide prepared by researchers show good performance in hydrogenation of phenol
