Nanocomposites for the petroleum industry are presented. MoS2 nanotubes with Ni nanoparticles deposited on their surface (see figure) are shown to be very effective for hydrodesulfurization of thiophene and thiophene derivatives at relatively low temperatures, providing a new way of eliminating sulfur pollution and thus enabling the highly efficient and clean utilization of organosulfur compounds.
