- Herein, we successfully design and construct core-shell nanostructured NiCo2S4@Ni3S2 directly on Ni foam by a scalable and effective one-step strategy. Further, through simply and accurately controlling the concentration of sulfur source, various nanostructures of NiCo2S4@Ni3S2 arrays in situ on Ni foam are successfully synthesized. The intriguing core-shell structures and integrated electrode configurations endow NiCo2S4@Ni3S2 electrode a large electroactive sites, fast electron transport path and sufficient contacts with electrolyte. Serving as free-standing electrode, as-fabricated NiCo2S4@Ni3S2 arrays exhibit the high specific capacity (4.55 C cm−2 at 5 mA cm−2), good rate performance and good cycling stability. Impressively, current research provides a general, scalable and effective one-step strategy for constructing core-shell nanostructures for energy storage devices.
