In contrast to graphite, MoS2 retains its lubrication properties in vacuum. The coefficient of friction of MoS2 powder, compressed into pellets, has been measured under high vacuum conditions. Well run‐in surfaces, which have been stationary for a period of time, show higher friction initially upon resumption of sliding. Presence of an amorphous layer of sulfur during sliding is postulated.
