General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.
Molybdenum disulfide is a two dimensional layered material. Monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs)exhibit photoconductivity. The layers of the TMD can be mechanically or chemicaly exfoliated to form nanosheets. TMD such as MoS2 shows non linear optical property, it was studied in detail by ns pulsed laser at 1064 nm and 532 nm.

Application

Hydrogenation and isomerization catalyst. Photoresponse of MoS2 nanosheets, formed by chemical route was studied. MoS2 may find potential applications in electronics and optoelectronics.
