Enhanced electrochemical properties of cellular CoPS@C nanocomposites for HER, OER and Li-ion batteries

Author affiliations

Abstract

Cellular CoPS@C nanocomposites were successfully synthesized via a facile two-steps route. The performances of the CoPS@C electrode as a non-noble metal electrocatalyst for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) show good activity. On the other hand, the electrochemical investigation of CoPS systems for lithium ion batteries (LIBs) is reported for the first time. The CoPS@C nanocomposite as a novel anode can maintain a capacity of about 713 mA h g−1 after 50 cycles at a current density of 0.2 A g−1, indicating its potential applications in lithium storage. Test results also demonstrate that the CoPS@C nanocomposite exhibit more excellent HER, OER and Li storage performances compared to the bulk CoPS sample.
