Distributor of molybdenum disulfide

Description

Molybdenum disulphide is naturally found in the form of molibdnite mineral and has an appearance very similar to graphite. Molybdenum sulphide is not very soluble in water while it easily dissolves in acqua regia (mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acid) and hot water in some inorganic acids like nitric, sulphuric and hydrochloric acid. In its pure state, this product is used as a lubricant.
