Hydrogenation and isomerization catalyst. Photoresponse of MoS2 nanosheets, formed by chemical route was studied. MoS2 may find potential applications in electronics and optoelectronics.

General description

Molybdenum disulfide is a two dimensional layered material. Monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs)exhibit photoconductivity. The layers of the TMD can be mechanically or chemicaly exfoliated to form nanosheets. TMD such as MoS2 shows non linear optical property, it was studied in detail by ns pulsed laser at 1064 nm and 532 nm.
