dc.description.abstractHydrogen has attracted huge interest globally as a durable, environmentally safe and renewable fuel. Electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is one of the most promising methods for large scale hydrogen production, but the high cost of Pt-based materials which exhibit the highest activity for HER forced researchers to find alternative electro-catalyst. In this study, we report noble metal free a 3D hybrid composite of tungsten-molybdenum oxide and reduced graphene oxide (GO) prepared by a simple one step hydrothermal method for HER. Benefitting from the synergistic effect between tungsten-molybdenum oxide nanowires and reduced graphene oxide, the obtained W-Mo-O/rGO nanocomposite showed excellent electro-catalytic activity for HER with onset potential 50 mV, a Tafel slope of 46 mV decade−1 and a large cathodic current, while the tungsten-molybdenum oxide nanowires itself is not as efficient HER catalyst. Additionally, W-Mo-O/rGO composite also demonstrated good durability up to 2000 cycles in acidic medium. The enhanced and durable hydrogen evolution reaction activity stemmed from the synergistic effect broadens noble metal free catalysts for HER and provides an insight into the design and synthesis of low-cost and environment friendly catalysts in electrochemical hydrogen production.en
