A Freestanding Selenium Disulfide Cathode Based on Cobalt Disulfide‐Decorated Multichannel Carbon Fibers with Enhanced Lithium Storage Performance


SeS2 shows attractive advantages beyond bare S and Se as a cathode material for lithium storage. Here, a freestanding lotus root‐like carbon fiber network decorated with CoS2 nanoparticles (denoted as CoS2@LRC) has been designed and prepared as the SeS2 host for enhancing the lithium storage performance. The integrated electrode is constructed by three‐dimensional interconnected multichannel carbon fibers, which can not only accommodate high content of SeS2 (70 wt %), but also promise excellent electron and ion transport for achieving high capacity utilization of 1015 mAh g−1 at 0.2 A g−1. What is more, there are numerous CoS2 nanoparticles decorated all over the inner walls and surfaces of the carbon fibers, providing efficient sulfiphilic sites for restricting the dissolution of polysulfides and polyselenides during the electrochemical processes, thus successfully suppressing the shuttle effect and maintaining excellent cycling stability over 400 cycles at 0.5 A g−1.

Exzellenter Lithiumspeicher: Ein freistehendes, der Lotuswurzel ähnelndes, CoS2‐dekoriertes Kohlefasernetzwerk (CoS2@LRC) wurde als Wirt für SeS2 synthetisiert. Begünstigt durch die gut integrierten Eigenschaften des elektroaktiven SeS2, die funktionellen CoS2‐Nanopartikel und das leitfähige LRC‐Netzwerk zeigt die CoS2@LRC/SeS2‐Elektrode eine exzellente Lithiumspeicherleistung.

    Spectroscopically Controlled Quantum Bits

    Molecules could make useful systems for quantum computers, but they must contain individually addressable, interacting quantum bit centers. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a team of researchers has now presented a molecular model with three different, coupled qubit centers. As each center ... more

    Fuel from a Greenhouse Gas

    One step toward carbon dioxide (CO2) neutrality and the mitigation of both the greenhouse effect and the energy crisis would be to convert CO2 into hydrocarbon-based fuels like methane using light. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a Chinese research team has introduced a highly effective p ... more

    Economical PEF Production

    One possible replacement for drink containers made from PET is polyethylene furandicarboxylate (PEF), made from renewable resources. However, the production of the raw material for PEF from biomass is still rather inefficient. A new titanium-based photocatalyst could be about to change this ... more
