A Review of Recent Progress in Molybdenum Disulfide-Based Supercapacitors and Batteries

Abstract

Recently, transition metal chalcogenides, especially molybdenum chalcogenides, have triggered intensive interest due to their intriguing physicochemical properties. Owing to its high anisotropy and distinct crystal structure, numerous progresses have demonstrated that nanostructured MoS2, with the merit of low cost and prominent properties, is an excellent substitute for environmentally benignant energy conversion and storage devices. Its different compounds, such as MoS2/carbon, MoS2/polymer and MoS2/metal oxides, have also been applied in the field of energy storage including supercapacitors and batteries. In this review, we summarize recent five-year advancements in the development of MoS2 and MoS2-based composites in various electrochemical domains. In the discussion, emphasis is given to their applications on supercapacitor, lithium-ion batteries and sodium-ion batteries. In the end, further prospects and promising developments of the materials in the energy storage field are proposed.
