It is a highly relevant topic concerning how to improve the electrochemical performance of anode materials for the next generation lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Herein, for the first time, we report a facile and controllable approach to modify MoS 2 nanosheets, a typical 2D material, as an anode material for advanced LIBs via oxygen plasma engineering. An oxygen plasma treatment not only generates vacancies/defects but also incorporates heteroatom doping to form Mo–O–C bonds. This unique hybrid specialty enables the oxygen-plasma-treated MoS 2 to achieve superior electrochemical performance with high reversible capacities, a long-term cycle life, and good rate capabilities. The plasma-assisted modification is believed to be applicable for other 2D materials as an efficient anode for energy storages.
