Large amounts of Li ions can be electrochemically intercalated into and controllably released by the channels between individual molybdenum selenide nanotubes (see Figure), forming the basis for a promising safe new battery electrode material. The use of dichalcogenide nanotubes rather than the more usual carbon is shown to have important advantages.
