Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Molybdenum Disulfide - An Inorganic Analogue of Graphene and other Interesting Inorganic Nanomaterials for the Future" report to their offering.
Molybdenum Disulfide has demonstrated exciting properties including a low coefficient of friction, robustness and a direct electronic bandgap. This has excited the research community and industry as future electronic circuits and components could be made from MoS2.
Why is this of interest? Graphene is currently grabbing the headlines and is the topic of many papers and patents including composite materials, conductive and transparent coatings and touch screen displays, but Graphene needs to be modified in order to create a bandgap and MoS2 exhibits a bandgap naturally. Molybdenum disulfide has been used for many years as an industrial lubricant and many scientists believe it can be used as a 2-D platform for electronic devices. MoS2 could radically impact the electronics industry and its growing area of research and product development in producing the next generation of transistors.
The report highlights academic research published in 2012 that could be of interest to companies developing new technologies that involve inorganic nanomaterials. The report also highlights companies and research organisations that are patenting.
