Abstract

original image

Highly ordered mesoporous MoS2 with a high surface area and narrow pore-size distribution is synthesized by a vacuum assisted impregnation route. The mesoporous MoS2 demonstrates an expanded d002 spacing of 0.66 nm. The mesoporous MoS2 electrode achieves an excellent high rate capacity of 608 mAh g−1 at the discharge current of 10 A g−1 (∼15C), which places MoS2 as a viable next generation high power source for electric vehicles.
