The team created a series of split-gate molybdenum sulfide
transistors to mimic the coincidence nerve network in the owl's brain.

The higher activity of the smaller particles could be the result of an increase in the number of available surface atoms located at the edges of the molybdenum sulfide clusters which have been proposed to be the active sites for HDS .
For particles with diameters around 13 nm, the % of HDS was double that of bulk molybdenum sulfide and also significantly higher when compared with particles with diameters around 100-400 nm.
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.
The new particles are ten times more active than molybdenum sulfide made conventionally, says Kenneth S.
