MoSe2 nanosheets with ultrathin thickness and rich defects were grown on the surface of carbon fiber cloth by a facile solvent-thermal method. The active area and conductivity of the MoSe2 catalyst were increased simultaneously because of the NH4F etching effect and its incorporation with carbon fiber cloth. As a result, the MoSe2-based catalysts exhibited excellent HER activity including small onset potential, large exchange current density and small Tafel slope, which is superior to most of MoSe2-based catalysts reported previously.
