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
2.80 g/cm3

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

Decomposes To
MoS2
Band Gap
1.499 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.

Calculated powder diffraction pattern; note that peak spacings may be affected due to inaccuracies in calculated cell volume, which is typically overestimated on average by 3% (+/- 6%)

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 [...]
