Titanium disulfide is yellow crystalline powder with metallic lustre. It is stable at room temperature, further stable to water, dilute sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid. However nitric acid and sulfuric acid can resolve it and separate out sulfur. It has layers structure and every layer include S-Ti-S interlayer, between the interlayer contact by weak van der waals force. Titanium wire and sulfur or titanium tetrachloride and hydrogen sulfide are the raw material.
