One is a process that uses molybdenum sulfide instead of platinum to liberate hydrogen from water via electrolysis.
Researchers from the United States and Denmark, led by Jens Norskov of Stanford University, used a bio-inspired molybdenum sulfide catalyst coupled with a light-absorbing electrode to make hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a new way to make tiny crystals of molybdenum sulfide
, a material that the petroleum industry uses to remove smelly sulfur compounds from gasoline.
DOE's announcement noted that in Phase I "NanoMech developed a molybdenum sulfide
particle based additive that is particularly useful for a number of aerospace and manufacturing applications, and NanoMech successfully demonstrated a manufacturing method to produce significant quantities of the lubricant materials to meet potential commercial demand of the new lubricant additive products.
This early porphyry is a wall rock to mineralization and has been over printed with potassic alteration and contains quartz veinlets with copper and molybdenum sulfides
