The catalytic activity of sulfided Ni 1 3MoS2 samples prepared by MoS2 impregnation with nickel nitrate solutions in 14 organic solvents, water, and ammonia was examined in the hydrogenation of o-xylene containing some thiophene and compared with that of samples impregnated with the nickel salt melt. Promotion of MoS2 was found to depend on the nature of the solvent affecting both surface area of catalysts and amount of nickel promoter, which can be chemically bound on the surface of molybdenum disulfide.
