Molybdenum disulfide is the inorganic compound with the formula MoS 2. The compound is classified as a di-chalcogenide. It is a silvery black solid that occurs as the mineral molybdenite, the principal ore for molybdenum. MoS2 is relatively unreactive, being unaffected by dilute acids and oxygen. In its appearance and feel, molybdenum disulfide is similar to graphite. Indeed, like graphite, it is widely used as a solid lubricant because of its low friction properties and robustness.

An ultrasensitive molybdenum-based image sensor

An EPFL team has built a prototype image sensor based on the semiconducting properties of molybdenite (molybdenum disulfide, MoS2). It could one day result in cameras that are five times more light-sensitive than current technology.
