Tungsten and molybdenum disulfides were produced in direct self-sustained combustion in argon between elementary sulfur and metal (W, Mo) nanopowders prepared by electrical explosion of wires. The results of XRD analysis show that the main phases of the synthesized nanopowders are hexagonal WS2 and MoS2. According to SEM and TEM observations, they are agglomerated nanolamellar particles of thickness 40-150 nm and width 100-3000 nm.
