The fabrication of a 3D current collector with bitter melon-like TiO2–NCNFs for highly stable lithium–sulfur batteries

Author affiliations

Abstract

The conductive 3D freestanding N-doped carbon nanofibers (NCNFs) current collector was embedded with homogeneously polar TiO2 nanoparticles. This current collector used for the sulfur cathode exhibits strong chemical adsorption for hindering the shuttle effect of polysulfides, and demonstrates a high specific capacity of 865 mA h g−1 at 0.2C and excellent cycle performance (200 cycles with capacity retention of 91%).
