The catalytic activity of a rather new nanomaterial, IF-MoS2 (inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles), towards hydrodesulfurization (HDS) activity has been characterized at ultra-high vacuum conditions. Thiophene TDS as well as quasi steady-state kinetics experiments have been conducted. The IF-MoS2 nanoparticles were supported on sapphire and silica.
