High quality and high purity MoSe2 Powder

Suitable for liquid chemical exfoliation

Technical Data | MSDS | Structure | Literature and Reviews | Related Products | Resources and Support

Chemical exfoliation is one of the the most suitable routes towards large-scale production of nano-particles and nano-sheets. Using N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) as a solvent, molybdenum diselenide (MoSe2), CAS number 12058-18-3, quantum dots can be prepared via chemical exfoliation - directly from molybdenum diselenide bulk powder.

Quasiparticle band-gap

With a high surface area and unique electronic (quasiparticle band-gap) properties, few-layered MoSe2 nanosheets have great potential as an advanced electrode material for supercapacitors and energy storage applications. Chemically-exfoliated MoSe2 nanosheets possess an obvious NIR absorption peak, leading to effective photothermal therapy of human lung cancer.

Viscoelastic Transfer of 2D Material Using PDMS

Viscoelastic transfer using polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamps is one of the methods used for the deterministic placement of 2D materials and the fabrication of van der Waals heterostructures. It relies on the viscoelasticity of PDMS, which behaves as an elastic solid on short time scales, but as a viscous fluid on long time scales.
