ReS2-based electrode materials for alkali-metal ion batteries


Alkali-metal (Li, Na, K) ion batteries have practically or potentially been widely used as a power source for portable electronic devices and electric vehicles. However, the lack of fast and high-capacity anodes is restricting their development. As a new member of two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides, rhenium disulfide (ReS2), with large interlayer space and weak van der Waals interaction between layers, can afford massive intercalation ions to diffuse easily between the layers. In this review, we summarize the recent progress of ReS2 as electrodes for alkali-metal ion batteries, mainly focusing on the synthesis method, structures, reaction mechanism, and the corresponding electrochemical performance. In addition, perspective and challenges of ReS2 electrodes are also discussed. This review will provide comprehensive knowledge of ReS2 electrodes and guideline for exploring more application in batteries.
