Prevention of Hydrogen Damage Using MoS2 Coating on Iron Surface
AbstractThe prevention of hydrogen penetration into steels can effectively protect steels from hydrogen damage. In this study, we investigated the effect of a monolayer MoS2 coating on hydrogen prevention using first-principles calculations. We found that monolayer MoS2 can effectively inhibit the dissociative adsorption of hydrogen molecules on an Fe(111) surface by forming a S–H bond. MoS2 coating acts as an energy barrier, interrupting hydrogen penetration. Furthermore, compared with the H-adsorbed Fe(111) film, the work function of the MoS2-coated film significantly increases under both equilibrium and strained conditions, indicating that the strained Fe(111) film with the MoS2 coating also becomes more corrosion resistant. The results reveal that MoS2 film is an effective coating to prevent hydrogen damage in steels. View Full-Text
