Low price, high purity 2D zirconium disulfide powder and crystals

For the development of next-generation electronics, optoelectronics, and nanotechnology


Zirconium disulfide (ZrS2) has a layered structure and it belongs to group IV transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs). ZrS2 crystals have the 1T structure, single layer of ZrS2 is formed by a zirconium atom layer sandwiched between two layers of sulfur atoms that are covalently bonded to the  zirconium atoms. Each zirconium atom is octahedrally coordinated by six sulfur atoms. Zirconium disulfide (ZrS2) possesses an indirect band gap in the bulk and becomes a direct gap semiconductor in its mono- or few-layer forms.

Like TiSand HfS2, ZrS2 adopts a layered structure similar to that of cadmium iodide (1T). Each single ZrS2 layer consists of one layer of Zr atoms, sandwiched in between two layers of sulfide atoms.

ZrS2 is thermodynamically stable, environmentally friendly with high sensitivity, and low-cost production. ZrS2 monolayers exhibited obvious n-type transport characteristics with relatively high mobility.

Key Product Data


    Applications of Zirconium Disulfide

    ZrS2 is a promising material for optoelectronics because of its greater carrier mobility at room temperature and higher current density than MoS2, which are desirable for low-power devices. With an indirect bandgap around 1.7 eV and direct bandgap around 2.0 eV for the monolayer, ZrS2 finds applications in thermoelectrics, Schottky solar cells, photodetectors, FETs and catalytic hydrogen production.

    Zirconium disulfide exhibits interesting single-layer properties such as enhanced thermoelectric property, electrical conductivity and strain-driven indirect-to-direct band gap transition.

    ZrS2 2D nanomaterials have a high electron mobility, i.e., 1200 cm2/Vs, which is more than three times larger than that of the widely investigated MoS2 (340 cm2/Vs). FET devices based on  ZrShave higher electronic sensitivity and excellent semiconducting properties. Calculations showed that ZrS2-based based tunnelling fieldeffect transistors (TFETs) can have sheet current densities of up to 800 μA/μm (100 times higher than that of MoS2), giving the rise of great application potential in low-power devices.
