Molybdenum disulfide is a compound formed from the mineral molybdenite. Because of its lubricating qualities, this compound is often used in lubricants. It forms a thin film on metal surfaces, and reacts with pressure to provide lubrication.

Molybdenum disulfide is used in lubricants to improve the lubricity of metal parts and protect them from wear. The compound forms a surface coating that binds to the metal surface. However, the additive's effectiveness is limited if it remains suspended, which is why it must be compatible with the oil. The compound that isn't compatible with oil can block the oil passageway and filter.

Molybdenum disulfide has the potential to be used to create transistors with a single atom. This compound is able to be integrated into electronic devices due to its excellent electrical properties. It is still a new material. So, most of the work with this compound has been trial-and-error. But this group has been able to use a simulation program to design a circuit with molybdenum disulfide in a more informed manner. It simulates the worst possible scenarios, then selects the design most likely to succeed. The results of the tests are then fed back into the program.

Molybdenum disulfide is used in greases for heavy duty applications. It is a great lubricant for bearings. This compound is made with lithium soap to protect it from water damage. It prevents grease from getting washed out of bearings and gears, protecting them. Lithium soap thickeners have excellent adhesion properties, which allows the lubricant stay in place for longer.

Many studies have attempted to explain the mechanism of friction within molybdenum diulfide. It is crucial to understand the relationship between function and structure. There are three major schools of thought about molybdenum diulfide. The behavior of graphite is the basis for two of the three schools of thought, while the third school bases its conclusions on molybdenum's behavior.

MoO&, despite its low friction can be easily cleaved using an abrasive material. The rate of cleavage is higher for smaller particles. This result is due to the presence of adsorbed molecules on its surface. MoO& reacts with sulfur dioxide to form MoOz, and MoOa. These are easily traceable on particle surface.

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a new class of materials. It is composed of transition metals bound with Group 16 elements. Its structure is similar to graphite. Ronald E. Bell and Robert E. Herfert created a new rhombohedral crystalline form of MoS2. The material obtained has similar properties to graphite.

Oxidation of molybdenum disulfide creates molybdenum oxides and elemental sufur. These compounds are the main products of the molybdenum oxidation process.
