2D MoS2 nanosheets have been utilized to fabricate 2D MoS2/CdS p-n nanohybrids through a one-pot solvothermal process. Due to the unique p-n junction heterostructure, large specific surface area, and decreased band gap, MoS2/CdS nanohybrids manifested a superior H2 -production rate of ~137 μmol h(-1) under visible-light irradiation and an apparent quantum yield of 10.5% at 450 nm.
