Abstract: We investigate the hydrogen adsorption on and diffusion through the MoS2 monolayer based on density-functional theory. We show that the hydrogen atom prefers to bond to the S atom at the monolayer, leading to enhanced conductivity. The hydrogen atom can also adsorb at the middle of the hexagon ring by overcoming an energy barrier of 0.57 eV at a strain of 8%. Also, we show that the MoS2 monolayer is flexible and any mechanical deformation of the monolayer is reversible because the extension of the Mo-S bond is much smaller than the applied strain. The monolayer can block the diffusion of hydrogen molecule from one side to the other due to a high energy barrier (6.56 eV). However, the barrier can be reduced to 1.38 eV at a strain of 30% and even totally removed by creating S vacancies and applying a strain of 15%. The MoS2 monolayer may find applications in sensors to detect hydrogen, and as mechanical valve to control the concentration of hydrogen gas.Copyright © 2012, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC.
