Improved Production of MoS2 Nanoparticles

Ground crystalline molybdenum sulfide (MoS2) has reliably proven itself as a universal and inert solid lubricant. Its lubricity could lately be outperformed by nano-MoS2 which fills smaller surface roughnesses and exerts lower inter-particle shear resistance. Through a crucial modification of its manufactoring process the synthesis of nano-MoS2 in a two-step reaction starting from ammonium heptamolybdate now succeeded. The overall process results in a mixture of multi-walled, hollow inorganic fullerene (IF) and nanotube (NT) particles of which softer elasticities are expected compared to previously known materials containing residual oxidic cores.
