Molybdenum disulfide is a pioneering example of a two-dimensional material, and due to its extraordinary properties, it has lately attracted a significant amount of study attention. These characteristics include a large surface area and porous character, the ability to be tuned by intercalation, excellent chemical and thermal stability, and wide availability in their natural state. MoS2 is a strong candidate for combining with carbon nanomaterials to develop unique hybrid nanostructures with extraordinary properties, such as increased catalytic activity. This would be accomplished by mixing MoS2 with the carbon nanoparticles. In this chapter, we have made an effort to review and consolidate the characteristics that are related to the synthesis of MoS2-carbon allotropes. Further, we have provided a brief description of the synthesis of these allotropes, as well as their applications. Researchers are focusing their attention on it for a variety of reasons, including the fact that it is simple to use, cost-effective, ...
