In this paper, we exfoliate MoS nanosheets in pure water via ultra- 2 2 Revised 2 November 2017 sonication and attempt to understand the exfoliation process and the dispersion behavior of hydrophobic Accepted 4 November 2017 MoS . Cavitation-induced exfoliation leads to thinning and fragmentation of MoS ﬂakes. Formation of 2 2 Available online 6 November 2017 mesoporous MoS sheets suggests that the exfoliation initiates from the basal planes. As for the disper- sion of MoS nanosheets in water, we
