What is Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2)?

Molybdenum disulfide refers to a naturally occurring mineral belonging to the transition metal dichalcogenide group. It is a solid lubricant with excellent anti-wear and anti-friction properties, making it suitable for high-temperature and high-pressure environments. Molybdenum disulfide is a two-dimensional material with a thickness of only a few atoms, owing to which it is extensively utilized across next-generation optoelectronics and electronics. It exhibits optimal semiconducting properties. As a result, molybdenum disulfide is widely used in electronic equipment, such as solar cells and transistors. It also finds various applications across several industries, including construction, automotive, aviation, chemical, consumer electronics, etc.
