It is really a great property of being able to use a single atom of Molybdenum disulfide, this will help a lot in miniaturization of the products as compared to silicon. But I think it will take a lot time to come out with a working commercial device made up of this material.

Yes, he must be referring to DMSO, an analog of acetone with the oxygen replaced by sulfur. And his second goof is also wrong. Hydrogen disulfide would be the analog to Hydrogen peroxide which decomposes to hydrogen sulfide, (more toxic than hydrogen cyanide but stinks so bad it's generally safer to have around) So don't put it on your sore muscles!

Yeah, the present use of Molybdenum sulphide is as the high temperature tolerant lubricant. Hence if this is used as an alternative to the semiconductor material, the components made out of it should be capable of operating at high temperature. Disadvantage is that MoS2 could react with oxygen and generate sulfur dioxide.

I think you are referring to DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) as the 'skin penetrator/transporter'...

Thanks for reading the story and connecting. I find it fascinating that this material can be used with graphene for future electronic applications. It's his kind of 'innovation w/o borders' that keeps the science and engineering moving along. Never mind that the real applications will only be consumed by our great-grandkids, if ever. Keep churning, researchers!

Oops, I mean hydrogen disulfide (H2S2)... :-( Molybdenum disulfide is a superior high-temperature lubricant. It is used for automotive bearings and constant-velocity (CV) joints.

MoS2 is also a "super solvent", capable of carrying anything dissolved in it directly to the bloodstream if in contact with the skin. By itself, it is pretty innocuous, but this side-effect makes it a dangerous substance. In the 1960's era it was used as a vector for assassinations and surreptitiousness drugging of people.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
