Title: Stable Carbon-Selenium Bonds for Enhanced Performance in Tremella-Like 2D Chalcogenide Battery Anode [Stable Carbon-Selenium Bonds for Enhanced Performance in Tremella-Like Two-Dimensional Chalcogenide Battery Anode]

Abstract

Two-dimensional cobalt selenide based on conversion reaction has attracted much attention due to its open layered structure and high specific capacity. However, effectively suppressing the fast capacity fade caused by the irreversible Se dissolution and serious volume change during the cycling process is still a challenges. Herein, we tune the concentration of dispersion liquid under supercritical condition to induce the CoSe crystal to grow along the graphene oxide (GO), and finally obtain the Tremella-like CoSe-rGO hybrid. The nature of epitaxial growth leads to the formation of stable C–Se bonds, which maintains favorable conductive connection between CoSe and reduced GO (rGO) as well as enhances the mechanical strength of active material to suppress Se dissolution and volume expansion during Na/Li intercalation and deintercalation. The unique microstructural merits of the hybrid result in superior sodium/lithium storage performance (400.8 mAh g-1 at 1 A g-1 after 100 cycles for NIBs and 769.6 mAh g-1 at 2 A g-1 after 500 cycles for LIBs). Moreover, the transmission X-ray microscopy technique is firstly used to directly observe the Se segregation in cobalt selenide and it being suppressed by the C–Se bonds.
