Abstract

Ultralong worm-like MoS2 nanostructures were assembled with a solvent-mediated solvothermal process by controlling the composition ratio of the miscible precursors in solution. The formation mechanism of worm-like MoS2 nanostructures was proposed and the as-prepared materials as anodes in sodium ion batteries delivered a good discharge–charge capacity, superior cycling stability and excellent coulombic efficiency. This work provides an efficient and economic approach to tailor the nanostructure of layered transition metal oxides and transition-metal dichalcogenides simply by controlling the chemical composition and physical properties in a solvothermal process.
