    Abstract

    The catalytic activity of molybdenum carbide nanoparticles towards hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) was analyzed in an electrochemical analysis cell. It was found that these particles are very active for catalyzing HER in acidic media and the reaction mechanism is dependent on pH and applied overpotential. The results are significant for optimizing the real application parameters and providing a method to analyze the reaction mechanism for HER.
