The photocatalytic properties of MoS2 samples including nano-ball, nano-slice and bulk 2H-MoS2 were evaluated and compared with that of the anatase TiO2 using the degradation reaction of methyl orange under visible light. The catalytic behaviors of the samples were also characterized
using transmission electron microscopy, Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, and FTIR
spectroscopy. The results show that the bulk MoS2 and the anatase TiO2 were almost inactive under visible light. The nano-slice presented the most positive catalytic effect because it has a wide
absorption at 400–700 nm and a high BET surface area. Though the BET surface area of the nano-ball was lower than that of
the nano-slice, it has an active curved basal surface and presented a catalytic activity close to that of the nano-slice.
Moreover, the MoS2 nano-slice catalyst could be conveniently regenerated after filtration and drying.
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2 ) and its relative composites have been vastly used as catalysts to remove S, O and N from organic substances [ 1 – 4 ]. The nature of the active sites in MoS2 -based catalysts was the
The catalytically active ( ) surface of MoS2 is difficult to characterize experimentally and information about atomic processes on this surface is scarce. In part, this is due to the extensive reconstruction and to the creation of numerous defects on
(Co)-promoted tetraalkylammonium thiometallates leads to structural replacement of sulfur by carbon on the edges of MoS2 layers and to a final surface Me x Me′S 2− y C z stoichiometry (0.01 < x < 2, 0.01 < y < 0.5, 0.01 < z < 3.0) and the composition is described as the
Precursors of unsupported NiMo and FeMo sulfide hydrodesulfurization catalysts with concentration ratiosr=Ni(Fe)/(Ni(Fe) + Mo) ranging from 0.1 to 0.3 were prepared by three methods: homogeneous sulfide precipitation (HSP), inverse HSP and coprecipitation. Differential thermal analysis was used to study the decomposition under argon, and the reduction/sulfidation under 15% H2S—H2 of the precursors and the subsequent oxidation under air of the samples obtained after these reactions. The reactivity of the solids varies as a function of the preparation method, the nature of the promoter and the concentration ratio. The degree of sulfidation of the precursor and the presence of either NH4NO3 or NH2Cl formed from group VIII metal salts and (NH4)2S may affect the thermal behaviour of samples during DTA.
