Title: Superior electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution at engineered non-stoichiometric two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide edges

Abstract

Compared with the stoichiometric edges (ZZSe and ZZMo), there is a wider family of synthesizable non-stoichiometric MoSe 2 edges, where the degree of non-stoichiometry can be tuned to potentially achieve optimal HER activity.
