Carbides are used extensively as cutting tools, forming dies, and recently in catalysis applications, among other industrial applications. In this work, the synthesis and characterization of a nanostructured MoW bimetallic carbide were carried out by mechanical alloying with a mixture of elemental powders with a nominal composition of W1.5Mo6C2.5 at different grinding times as follows: 25, 50, and 75 h in a low-energy ball mill at a speed of 500 rpm and 125 and 150 h in a high-energy ball mill at a speed of 1500 rpm. The formation of a solid solution was observed at 150 h of milling; the nanostructured bcc MoW carbide corresponded to the main phase in the sample, besides the presence of the nanostructured MoW alloy as a secondary phase with an average crystal size of 40.8 nm. The phases and morphology at every stage of milling were studied by: X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), and Vickers hardness. As the milling time increased, the hardness of these particles increased from 10.5 to 31.48 GPa for the powder particles milled for 150 h. The samples obtained at 125 and 150 h of milling were evaluated during catalytic aqua-thermolysis of heavy oil to analyze fuel desulfurization properties by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) techniques. The results showed the breaking of S-S bonds, indicating the existence of a desulfurization reaction of heavy oil.
