Title: MoS 2-on-MXene Heterostructures as Highly Reversible Anode Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) heterostructured materials, combining the collective advantages of individual building blocks and synergistic properties, have spurred great interest as a new paradigm in materials science. The family of 2D transition-metal carbides and nitrides, MXenes, has emerged as an attractive platform to construct functional materials with enhanced performance for diverse applications. Here, we synthesized 2D MoS 2-on-MXene heterostructures through in situ sulfidation of Mo 2TiC 2Tx MXene. The computational results show that MoS 2-on-MXene heterostructures have metallic properties. Moreover, the presence of MXene leads to enhanced Li and Li2S adsorption during the intercalation and conversion reactions. These characteristics render the as-prepared MoS 2-on-MXene heterostructures stable Li-ion storage performance. In conclusion, this work paves the way to use MXene to construct 2D heterostructures for energy storage applications.

Figure 1. Figure 1.: a) Schematic illustration of the preparation of MoS2/MXenehybrids. S/Mo2TiC2Tx hybrids were obtained by a liquid mixing process(left panel). Then the sulfur loaded MXene (middle panel) was head treated to obtain MoS2-on-MXene heterostructures (right panel). b) Raman spectra and c) XRD patterns of pure Mo2TiC2Tx, MoS2/Mo2TiC2Tx-500 and MoS2/Mo2TiC2Tx-700.
