Abstract

The SnSnanoflowers anchored on three dimensional porous graphene were easily constructed with nickel foam (NF) as supported backbone through the dip-coating method followed by one-step controllable hydrothermal growth and mild reduction. The interconnected SnSnanoflowers with cross-linking nanosheets and rich pores assembled to form one layer of continuous network structure, which tightly adhered on the surface of graphene. The porous graphene supported by NF built a conductively integral highway that is preferable for the charge transfer kinetics, while the hierarchical pores from the SnSnanoflowers and NF are particularly beneficial for mitigating the volume expansion and promoting electrolyte penetration. The as-constructed Ni foam/reduced graphene oxide/SnS(NF/RGO/SnS) composite exhibited dramatically enhanced reversible capacity, remarkable rate capability, and long-term cycling stabilities without the use of any binders and conductive additives. Especially, NF/RGO/SnScomposite remained the specific capacity as high as 561.9 mA h gat the current densities of 1000 mA gafter continuous tests for 160 cycles, which is much higher than conventional SnS/RGO composite. With the advantages of unique architecture and excellent sodium storage performances, the NF/RGO/SnScomposite shows promising application potential in the sodium ion batteries.
