Scholarcy highlights

  • We report a three-dimensional structured carbon material as the cathode supporter for rechargeable lithium − sulfur batteries
  • Elemental sulfur has been loaded to the micropores through a solution infiltration method to form a S/activated carbon foam nanocomposite
  • The resulted S/ACF nanocomposite with 60% sulfur has been tested as novel cathodes for Li − S batteries
  • The results show that the ACF with 3D connected structure could be a promising binder-free cathode supporter for rechargeable Li − S battery with high specific energy
