Designing and manufacturing new nanostructures with improved properties using modern techniques is a tempting prospect for nanotechnology. Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) is a widely used 2D nanomaterial. MoS2 found various applications such as a dry lubricant, in catalysis, hydrogen storage, and others. MoS2 can be an excellent candidate for being combined with carbon nanomaterials (CNMs) to obtain new hybrid nanostructures with outstanding properties including higher photo- and electrocatalytic activity. The aim of the conducted research was the preparation of hybrid nanostructures formed from MoS2 and CNMs such as graphene oxide, reduced graphene oxide, and carbon nanotubes. The nanostructures were synthesized in a continuous flow reactor. Physicochemical analysis of obtained materials was carried out, using various analytical techniques: FTIR spectroscopy, thermo-gravimetric analysis, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. Furthermore, the obtained materials were analysed in a photo-electrochemical system for further application in catalysis. Synthesis of hybrid nanocomposites MoS2/CNMs in the continuous flow reactor is a proper method allowing to easily obtain product with desired properties. The conducted research has shown that the addition of CNMs to MoS2 promote the charge transport of MoS2, due to their high electrical conductivity and large surface area.
