Abstract: Recently developed covalent functionalization chemistry for MoS2 in the 1Tʹ phase enables the formation of covalent chalcogenide-carbon bonds from alkyl halides and aryl diazonium salts. However, the coverage of functional groups using this method has been limited by the negative charge stored in the exfoliated MoS2 sheets to <25-30% per MoS2 unit. We report herein a reductantactivated functionalization wherein one-electron metallocene reductants, such as nickelocene, octamethylnickelocene, and cobaltocene, ar…
