Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) with a two-dimensional layered structure can effectively inhibit the shuttle effect of lithium-sulfur batteries. It contains metal-sulfur bonds and combines with polysulfides through electrostatic bonds or chemical bonds. To solve inherent problems in lithium-sulfur batteries, it’s important to prepare graphene supported MoS2 composite lithium-sulfur battery cathode materials.


MoS2 Cathode Modified with Glutamic Acid
