Abstract

Sulfur coated mesoporous carbon (S-C) composites have been synthesized and physically characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis. Firstly, the electrochemical properties of the S-C composite cathode materials were tested in a conventional electrolyte consisting of 1 mol/L lithium bistrifluormethanesulfonimidate in poly(ethylene glycol) dimethyl ether to compare them with pure sulphur electrode. The capacity and cyclic stability of the S-C composite were improved. Then the S-C composites were tested in a novel ionic liquid electrolyte consisting of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluromethanesulfonyl)imide and lithium
