Initially TMDs were applied as burnished or sputtered coatings in dry friction regime [2]; however, after the pioneering synthesis of TMDs as inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles [3], it became possible to make use of their potential as a lubricant additive. Shortly after, a number of researchers showed the great tribological potential of nanolubricants containing TMD nanoparticles and other morphologies including nanotubes [4-6].
