General Description

Titanium disulfide (TiS2) is highly stable. It is the most lightweight and low-cost Group IV TMDC material. TiS2 is known to be a semimetal in when in bulk form, and a semiconductor when strain or pressure is applied in the monolayer form. With a higher degree of overlap of the valence and conduction bands, its semi-metallic nature intensifies when compression is applied. However, the energetic overlap is lifted and a semimetal-to-semiconductor transition occurs under pressure or strains.


Two-dimensional thin layer nanosheets made from chemically-exfoliated titanium disulfide powder are generally used as electrode materials in storage batteries. Atomic-layered TiSquantum dot materials prepared from liquid exfoliation of  TiS2 powder can also be used as electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reactions (HER).


Titanium disulfide powder is obtained via the CVT method, with a purity in excess of 99.995% achieved.


Titanium disulfide powder is suitable for liquid chemical exfoliation to prepare TiS2 nanosheets and nanoparticles down to few-layer films. TiS2 powder is also used for preparation of mono-layer and few-layer films via chemical vapour deposition (CVD).
