Abstract

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) nanostructured has been synthesized by a facile and rapid microwave, in which ethylene glycol can act as an excellent susceptor of microwave irradiation. The structure and morphology of MoS2 were characterized by X–ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results show that nanometer scaled (< 100 nm) molybdenum disulfide with different morphologies can be successfully fabricated by microwave liquid–state method. Microwave irradiation can make localized heating that allows higher heating rates and shorter processing time. The low–cost synthesis procedure paves the way for the exploitation of the present product as electrode material in lithium ion batteries (LIBs).
