Chemical excision from amorphous MoS3; a quantitative EXAFS study

Author affiliations

Abstract

Quantitative information on the molybdenum containing species produced by the reaction of aqueous cyanide with the amorphous molybdenum sulfide MoS3 has been obtained from extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) studies. The results of this chemical excision study, in which Mo–Mo bonded triangular clusters are extracted from the solid, suggest that 70% of the molybdenum present in MoS3 is found in Mo3 clusters. This result is consistent with earlier diffraction and EXAFS experiments, but rules out the simplistic models proposed in those studies.
