Title: Interface and defect engineering of hybrid nanostructures toward an efficient HER catalyst

Abstract

To improve the HER catalyst the role of defects and interface of hetero-structures needs to be understood well. In this work, we signified the role of the hBN–CNS interface with possible defects in generating highly active sites for the HER catalysis.
