Application Of Molybdenum Disulfide

wallpapers Industry 2020-06-16

Molybdenum disulfide is an essential solid lubricant, especially suitable for high temperature and high pressure. It also has diamagnetism, can be used as a linear photoconductor and a semiconductor showing P-type or N-type conductivity, and has the function of rectification and energy conversion. Molybdenum disulfide can also be used as a catalyst for dehydrogenation of complex hydrocarbons.

It is also known as "The King of Advanced Solid Lubricants." Molybdenum disulfide powder is a solid powder made by chemically purifying natural molybdenum concentrate after changing the molecular structure. The color of MoS2 is slightly silvery gray, with a metallic luster, it has a smooth touch and is insoluble in water. The MoS2 has the advantages of excellent dispersibility and non-sticking. It can be added to various greases to form a non-sticky colloidal state, increasing the lubricity and extreme pressure of the lubricant. It is also suitable for high-temperature, high-pressure, high-speed, and high-load mechanical working conditions to extend equipment life.

The primary function of molybdenum disulfide used in friction materials is to reduce friction at low temperatures and increase resistance at high temperatures. The loss on ignition is small, and it is volatile in friction materials.

Anti-friction: The particle size of molybdenum disulfide produced by supersonic airflow crushing reaches 325-2500 mesh. The hardness of microparticles is 1-1.5, and the friction coefficient is 0.05-0.1, so it can reduce friction in friction materials;

Increase friction: Molybdenum disulfide powder is not conductive, and there are copolymers of molybdenum disulfide, molybdenum trisulfide, and molybdenum trioxide. When the friction material's temperature rises sharply due to friction, the molybdenum trioxide particles in the copolymer expand as the temperature rises and plays a role in increasing resistance;

Anti-oxidation: Molybdenum disulfide is obtained through a comprehensive reaction of chemical purification, and its PH value is 7-8, which is slightly alkaline. It covers the surface of friction material, can protect other materials and prevent them from being oxidized, especially makes other materials not easy to fall off, and the adhesion force is enhanced;

Fineness: 325 mesh -2500 mesh;

PH value: 7-8;

Density: 4.8-5.0g/cm3;

Hardness: 1-1.5;

Loss on ignition: 18-22%;

Friction coefficient: 0.05-0.09.

Besides, molybdenum disulfide can also become a new material for making transistors. Compared with graphene, which is a two-dimensional material, molybdenum disulfide has an energy band gap of 1.8 eV, while graphene does not have an energy bandgap. Therefore, molybdenum disulfide may have a vast application space in the field of nano-transistors. Moreover, the electron mobility of the single-layer molybdenum disulfide transistor can reach up to about 500 cm^2/(Vs), and the current switching rate reaches 1×10^8.
