The integration of diverse components into a single heterostructure represents an innovative approach that boosts the quantity and variety of active centers, thereby enhancing the catalytic activity for both hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) and oxygen evolution reactions (OER) in the water splitting process. In this study, a novel, hierarchically porous one-dimensional nanowire array comprising zinc cobalt sulfide and molybdenum disulfide (MoS 2 @Zn 0.76 Co 0.24 S) was successfully synthesized on a Ni foam substrate using an efficient and straightforward hydrothermal synthesis strategy. The incorporation of the metallic phase of molybdenum di sulfide elevates the electronic conductivity of MoS 2 @Zn 0.76 Co 0.24 S, resulting in impressively low overpotentials.

At 20, 50, and 100 mA cm − 2 , the overpotentials for oxygen evolution reaction (OER) are merely 90 mV, 170 mV, and 240 mV, respectively. Similarly, for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), the overpotentials are 169 mV, 237 mV, and 301 mV at the same current densities in 1.0 M potassium hydroxide solution. The utilization of the MoS 2 @Zn 0.76 Co 0.24 S /NF electrolyzer demonstrates its exceptional performance as a catalyst in alkaline elec trolyzers. Operating at a mere 1.45 V and 10 mA cm − 2 , it showcases outstanding efficiency. Achieving a current density of 405 mA cm − 2 , the system generates hydrogen at a rate of 3.1 mL/min with a purity of 99.997%, achieving an impressive cell efficiency of 68.28% and a voltage of 1.85 V. Furthermore, the MoS 2 @Zn 0.76 Co 0.24 S /NF hybrid exhibits seamless integration with solar cells, establishing a photovoltaic electrochemical system for comprehensive water splitting. This wireless assembly harnesses the excellent performance of the hybrid nanowire, offering a promising solution for efficient, durable, and cost-effective bifunctional electrocatalysts in the realm of renewable energy.
