Material Details

Final Magnetic Moment
0.000 μB

Calculated total magnetic moment for the unit cell within the magnetic ordering provided (see below). Typically accurate to the second digit.

Magnetic Ordering
Non-magnetic
Formation Energy / Atom
-1.306 eV

Calculated formation energy from the elements normalized to per atom in the unit cell.

Energy Above Hull / Atom
0.001 eV

The energy of decomposition of this material into the set of most stable materials at this chemical composition, in eV/atom. Stability is tested against all potential chemical combinations that result in the material's composition. For example, a Co2O3 structure would be tested for decomposition against other Co2O3 structures, against Co and O2 mixtures, and against CoO and O2 mixtures.

Density
2.42 g/cm3

The calculated bulk crystalline density, typically underestimated due calculated cell volumes overestimated on average by 3% (+/- 6%)

Decomposes To
MoS2
Band Gap
1.551 eV

In general, band gaps computed with common exchange-correlation functionals such as the LDA and GGA are severely underestimated. Typically the disagreement is reported to be ~50% in the literature. Some internal testing by the Materials Project supports these statements; typically, we find that band gaps are underestimated by ~40%. We additionally find that several known insulators are predicted to be metallic.

Synthesis Descriptions

Commercial molybdenum disulfide (com-MoS2) powder (Aldrich) was soaked in n-butyllithium in hexane (Aldrich) to form LixMoS2. The lithiated product was exfoliated in water to form a quasi-stable suspe [...]
The D-MoS2 were prepared according to the reference reported previously [23]. The specific process is as follows: hexaammonium heptamolybdate tetrahydrate (2mmol, (NH4)6Mo7O244H2O) and thiourea (60 [...]
