Abstract

Article history: N-doped yolk-shell hollow carbon sphere wrapped with reduced graphene oxide (rGO/N-YSHCS) is Received 12 May 2017 designed and fabricated as sulfur host for lithium-sulfur batteries. The shuttle effect of polysulfides can Received in revised form 19 June 2017 be suppressed effectively by the porous yolk-shell structure, graphene layer and N-doping. A good con- Accepted 28 June 2017 ductivity network is provided for electron transportation through the graphene layer coupled with the Available online 1 July 2017 unique yolk-shell carbon matrix. Such unique structure offers the synthesized rGO/N-YSHCS/S electrode −1 with a high reversible capacity (800 mAh g at 0.2 C after 100 cycles) and good high-rate capability Keywords: −1 −1 (636 mAh g at 1 C and 540 mAh g at 2 C).
