Ni–Mn–S was electrodeposited on mild steel from sulphate–thiocyanate baths. The resultant materials were evaluated for electrocatalytic activity towards hydrogen evolution reaction in 30 wt-% KOH. Incorporation of sulphur in Ni–Mn improves the electrocatalytic activity giving a sizeable increase in exchange current density j0. In Ni–Mn the hydrogen evolution reaction is through a Volmer–Tafel mechanism whereas in the Ni–Mn–S system follows a Tafel mechanism. The influence of deposition current density (CD) was investigated. Electrocatalytic activity increased with increase in the deposition CD and was maximum in samples deposited at 80 mA cm22.
