An approach for the generation of molybdenum disulfide nanostructures by the sulfidation of patterned sub-300 nm features of molybdenum metal was described. It was showed that soft-lithographic techniques can be used to generate patterns of MoS2 nanostructures with controllable orientation, height, width, and shape. It was found that supporting surfaces for the nanostructures need to be stable at high temperatures, 850 °C, and toxicity of the sulfur source. The results show that careful gas-handling and proper exhaust equipment can alleviate concerns about H2S.
