Abstract

Scrupulous design and fabrication of advanced electrode materials are vital fordeveloping high-performance sodium ion batteries. Herein, we report a facileone-step hydrothermal strategy for construction of a C-MoSe2/rGO compositewith both high porosity and large surface area. Double modification of MoSe2nanosheets is realized in this composite by introducing a reduced grapheneoxide (rGO) skeleton and outer carbon protective layer. The MoSe2 nanosheets arewell wrapped by a carbon layer and also strongly anchored on the interconnectedrGO network. As an anode in sodium ion batteries, the designed C-MoSe2/rGOcomposite delivers noticeably enhanced sodium ion storage, with a highspecific capacity of 445 mAh·g−1 at 200 mA·g−1 after 350 cycles, and 228 mAh·g−1even at 4 A·g−1; these values are much better than those of C-MoSe2 nanosheets(258 mAh·g−1 at 200 mA·g−1 and 75 mAh·g−1 at 4 A·g−1). Additionally, the sodiumion storage mechanism is investigated well using ex situ X-ray diffraction andtransmission electron microscopy methods. Our proposed electrode designprotocol and sodium storage mechanism may pave the way for the fabricationof other high-performance metal diselenide anodes for electrochemical energystorage.
