What is Tungsten Disulfide?

(WS2) is a dry/solid lubricant powder and one of the world’s most
lubricious substances. WS2 offers excellent dry lubricity (COF: 0.03) unmatched
by any other substance, including Graphite or Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2). As
tungsten disulfide, i.e., a highly efficient lubricant, it is generally used in
applications requiring large load carrying, friction co-efficiency, and
endurance. WS2 tungsten disulfide has been used for several aerospace,
automotive, and military applications. The preparation of WS2 by CVD can be
achieved using either a one- or a two-step method. The one-step method involves
directly heating sulfur and tungsten sources in a CVD furnace, controlling the
carrier gas flow, and depositing the WS2 film on the target substrate (Figure
3(a)). Several methods, including aerosol, burnishing, tumbling, and
impingement, can apply tungsten disulfide (WS2) coatings. Tungsten in powder
form is FLAMMABLE and may ignite spontaneously in AIR. * Use dry chemical or
CO2 extinguishers. * POISONOUS FUMES ARE PRODUCED IN FIRE, including Tungsten
Trioxide. * Employees who are expected to fight fires must be trained and
equipped as stated in OSHA 1910.156. The hydrogen reduction of high-purity
tungsten oxides mainly produces tungsten powder. Oxides are produced using
ammonium para tungstate (APT). Tungsten trioxide and tungsten blue oxide tend
to be the starting materials. This reduction takes place in pusher furnaces.


Is tungsten harmful to skin?

Contact can cause severe skin burns. * Tungsten Carbide may
cause a skin allergy. If an allergy develops, very low future exposure can
cause itching and a skin rash. * Exposure to Tungsten Carbide combined with
Cobalt or Nickel can cause a lung allergy with wheezing, coughing, and
shortness of breath. The WO3 and WO3–carbon composite powders prepared by spray
pyrolysis were transformed into WS2 and WS2–carbon composite powders by a
sulfidation process. The morphologies and crystal structures of the bare WO3
and WO3–carbon composite powders prepared by spray pyrolysis under nitrogen
atmosphere. The carbon component was formed by polymerization, and the
carbonization of sucrose dissolved into the spray solution. The powders had a
spherical shape and non aggregation characteristics, regardless of the carbon
component. One particle with a spherical shape was formed from one droplet by a
gas phase reaction. The WO3–carbon composite powders with high carbon content
had a larger mean size than the bare WO3 powders. The bare WO3 powders had a
sharp monoclinic crystal structure without impurity peaks. On the other hand,
the WO3–carbon composite powders had an amorphous structure with low-intensity
crystalline peaks.


Tungsten sulfide (WS2)–carbon
composite powders

In this study, tungsten sulfide (WS2)–carbon composite
powders with superior electrochemical properties were prepared by a two-step
process. WO3–carbon composite powders prepared by spray pyrolysis were
sulfidation to form the WS2–carbon composite powders. The spherical shape and
micron size of the WO3–carbon composite powders were maintained even after the
sulfidation process. The electrochemical properties of the WS2–carbon composite
powders were compared to those of the bare WS2 powders. The WS2–carbon composite
powders had higher capacities than the bare WS2 powders. Commercial LIB anode
materials typically comprise spherical powders with sizes of several microns.
However, micron-sized metal sulfide–carbon composite powders with spherical
particles and superior electrochemical properties have been scarcely studied in
the conventional liquid solution processes. Transition metal sulfides (MxSy, M
= W, Mo, Zn, Mn, Ni, Fe) with various morphologies prepared by conventional
liquid solution processes have been investigated as promising anode materials
for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In particular, layered dichalcogenide
materials (MoS2 and WS2), which have van der Waals forces across the gaps
between the S–M–S sheets, thus allowing the Li ions to diffuse without a
significant increase in volume expansion, have higher structural stabilities
during repeated lithiation and delithiation processes as compared with
transition metal oxides and tin oxide studied widely as anode materials for
LIBs. In addition, transition metal dichalcogenides have better electronic and
ionic conductivities than transition metal oxides and tin oxide. However, the
electronic conductivity of transition metal dichalcogenides is still lower
compared to carbon-based materials15. Carbonaceous materials, including
graphene, carbon nanotubes, and amorphous carbon, have been composited with
transition metal dichalcogenides to improve their electrochemical properties.
Various structured MoS2–carbon composite materials prepared by liquid solution methods
have been studied as anode materials for LIBs. However, WS2–carbon composite
materials’ preparation and electrochemical properties have been scarcely
studied. WS2–graphene composite materials had better cycling and rate
performances than bare WS2 powders.
