Hierarchically Porous MoS2-Carbon Hollow Rhomboids for Superior Performance of the Anode of Sodium-Ion Batteries
2020 American Chemical Society. It is always challenging to fabricate two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides into multiple hollow micro-/nanostructures with improved properties for various potential applications. Here, hierarchically porous MoS2-C hollow rhomboids (MCHRs) have been creatively synthesized via a facile self-templated solvothermal approach. It has been clarified that the obtained MCHRs assembled beneath ultrathin γ-MnS and carbon cohybridized MoS2 nanosheets under the structural direction of the MnMoO4·0.49H2O self-template. The prepared MCHR anode of sodium-ion batteries exhibited a reversible capacity of 506 mA h g-1 at 0.1 A g-1, ultrahigh rate capabilities up to 10 A g-1 with 310 mA h g-1, and exceptional stability over 3000 cycles. This study provides inspiration for the rational design of hierarchically porous hollow nanostructures with specific geometries as an excellent electrode material for outstanding performance energy storage equipment.
