General Description : A yellow or gray powder that has an unpleasant odor. It is used as a solid lubricant. TiS2 is very toxic for humans. If it comes in contact with water, hydrogen sulfide is produces, which is a toxic flammable gas. Inhaling the gas can cause severe injury or death.
Fire Hazard. TiS2 is moisture sensitive and is very flammable when it comes into contact with moisture or air.
Thin films of TiS2 are used in Lithium Ion Batteries 
Belongs to the transition metal dichalcogenides 
TiS2 nanotubes can be used as a hydrogen storage material

The development of these pages on photovoltaic materials’ properties was carried out at the University of Utah primarily by undergraduate students Jeff Provost and Carina Hahn working with Prof. Mike Scarpulla. Caitlin Arndt, Christian Robert, Katie Furse, Jash Sayani, and Liz Lund also contributed. The work was fully supported by the US National Science Foundation under the Materials World Network program award 1008302. These pages are a work in progress and we solicit input from knowledgeable parties around the world for more accurate or additional information.
