Highly active hetero nanoparticles (NPs), Ag@Fe3O4 were synthesized and characterized. These hetero structured materials are formed by allowing a growth of silver NPs on a magnetite surface in the presence of an oleylamine. Thus developed material has been characterized through PXRD, TEM and SEM-EDX analysis. Further, these materials have been evaluated in the hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) in the presence of a weak electrolyte. The current density obtained for hydrogen evolution is − 10 mA cm−2 at an over potential of 33 mV using these NPs.
