An anode material incorporating a sulfide is reported. SnS2 nanoparticles anchored onto reduced graphene oxide are produced via a chemical route and demonstrate an impressive capacity of 350 mA h g(-1), exceeding the capacity of graphite. These results open the door for a new class of high capacity anode materials (based on sulfide chemistry) for potassium-ion batteries.
