Tungsten Disulfide Chermical Formula

Tungsten(IV) sulfide is a chemical compound, which occurs naturally as the rare mineral called tungstenite. Its chemical formula is WS2. It is used, in conjunction with other materials, as catalyst for hydrotreating of crude oil. WS2 can also exist in the form of atomically thin sheets called nanosheets. Nanosheets exhibit room-temperature photoluminescence. Its other chemical names are Tungsten sulfide (WS2), Dithioxotungsten, Tungsten(IV) sulfide, Tungsten disulfide, Tungsten disulphide. Its Molecular Weight is 247.97 g/mol.
