AbstractThe industrial artificial fixation of atmospheric N-2 to NH3 is carried out using the Haber-Bosch process that is not only energy-intensive but emits large amounts of greenhouse gas. Electrochemical reduction offers an environmentally benign and sustainable alternative for NH3 synthesis. Although Mo-dependent nitrogenases and molecular complexes effectively catalyze the N-2 fixation at ambient conditions, the development of a Mo-based nanocatalyst for highly performance electrochemical N-2 fixation still remains a key challenge. Here, greatly boosted electrocatalytic N-2 reduction to NH3 with excellent selectivity by defect-rich MoS2 nanoflowers is reported. In 0.1 m Na2SO4, this catalyst attains a high Faradic efficiency of 8.34% and a high NH3 yield of 29.28 mu g h(-1) mg(cat.)(-1) at (-)0.40 V versus reversible hydrogen electrode, much larger than those of defect-free counterpart (2.18% and 13.41 mu g h(-1) mg(cat.)(-1)), with strong electrochemical stability. Density functional theory calculations show that the potential determining step has a lower energy barrier (0.60 eV) for defect-rich catalyst than that of defect-free one (0.68 eV).
