A STM image captures the bright shape of the molybdenum sulfidenanocluster on a graphite surface (left). The grey spots are carbon atoms. Together the moly sulfide and graphite make the electrode. 
Two positive hydrogen ions gain electrons through a chemical reaction at the moly sulfide nanocluster to form pure molecular hydrogen (right). (Image credit Jakob Kibsgaard). 1 nm, nanometer = 10-9 meter

iNANO researchers publishes in Nature Chemistry.

Catalysts made of molybdenum sulphides have been used for the desulphurisation of oil since World War II. Now, Jakob Kibsgaard and Prof. Besenbacher, however, has revealed promising results to produce hydrogen from water by means of nanoparticles of Mo3S13 in a collaboration between iNANO and Stanford. What is so smart about Mo3S13 is that it can…
