Abstract: Transition metal sulfides are scientifically and technologically important materials. This review summarizes recent progress on the synthetic fabrication of transition metal sulfides nanocrystals with controlled shape, size, and surface functionality. Special attention is paid to the case of MoS2 nanoparticles, where organic (surfactant, polymer), inorganic (support, promoter, doping) compounds and intercalation chemistry are applied.
Keywords: transition metal sulfide; molybdenum sulfide; fabrication; surfactant; polymer; support; promotion; doping; intercalation
