Molybdenum Disulfide Sheets Exhibit A Significant Advantage Over Graphene
2014-03-13 06:58:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Layers of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a naturally occurring compound in rocks, of just a single atom in thickness may be better than graphene for electronics applications, according to new research from the University of Warsaw. However, the researchers caution that the nature of the phenomena occurring in layered materials are not well understood and still require further research. Graphene is a material built of six-atom carbon...

Molybdenite is a mineral of molybdenum disulfide, MoS2. Similar in appearance and feel to graphite, molybdenite has a lubricating effect which is produced by its structure of close-spaced parallel cleavage planes. Finely powdered MoS2, with particle sizes in the 1-100 µm range, is a common technical dry lubricant. It is also often mixed into various oils or greases, which allows mechanisms so lubricated to run less noisy and to keep running for a while longer even if most of the oil should...
