Abstract

THE existence of molybdenum sesquisulphide, Mo2S3, as a distinct phase has been in doubt for a considerable time. It was only in 1955 that McCabe1 convincingly demonstrated the existence of the phase and obtained its X-ray powder pattern. An attempt to index the powder pattern has been made by Stubbles and Richardson2; they tentatively propose a tetragonal unit cell with c = 10.9 Å.; c/a = 1.27.
