General description

Molybdenum disulfide nanoplatelet (MoS2) is a two dimensional layered transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) which has hexagonal layers of molybdenum atoms that are sandwiched between two layers of chalcogen atoms. It can be used as a non-linear optical material and as a reinforcing filler in polymeric composites.


Owing to the thickness dependent physical and chemical properties, the transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) based two dimensional (2D) nanomaterials have drawn significant attention recently. The atomically thin layers of MoS2 and WS2 represent important class of TMD based 2D-material and they find applications in photocatalysis, phtotovoltaics, gas sensing, lithium ion batteries, field effect transistors, spintronics etc.
MoS2 based nanoplatelets can be used for a variety of applications such as optoelectronic, photonic, laser and solar hydrogen generation.
