This work reported a facile strategy for preparing S/Co-NC composite sulfur cathode materials with different Co loadings derived from ZIF-67, which were applied as cathode materials for Li-S batteries. SEM and TEM were used to observe the morphology and pore structure of Co-NC composite. XRD analysis was employed to investigate the crystalline state of cobalt embedded in porous carbon materials. N2 adsorption-desorption techniques was used to characterize the BET surface area and pore volume of Co-NC samples. Experimental results showed that the Co-NC with Co content of 15.93wt% exhibited the superior electrochemical performance. The cathode equipped with optimized composite showed a high capacity retention rate of 94.84% between 50 th to 200 th cycles at 0.2C current density, and even at high current density (5.0C), a high discharge capacity of 718.8 mAh?g -1 could still be obtained.
