Hexagonal TiS2 was synthesized as a high-capacity anode material for lithium ion batteries.X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) indicated that this material had a layeredstructure with particle sizes between 10 and 20 μm. It shows three discharge plateaus between 3.00 and0.00 V with a reversible capacity of up to 668 mAh·g-1. It has excellent cycling performance between 3.00and 1.40 V. Particle pulverization and formation of Li2S lead to performance degradation because of theirreversible dissolution of Li2S into the electrolyte below 0.50 V. The addition of extra acetylene black and adecrease in particle size markedly improve the electrochemical performance of the TiS2 anode.
