Abstract

By simple pyrolysis of a tin salen complex [Sn(salen)] and sulfur powder at 700 °C, SnS nanoparticles with ∼20 nm thickness homogeneously embedded in nitrogen-doped carbon are prepared. When applied as lithium-ion battery anodes, the SnS/N-C nanocomposites exhibited long cycling stability and excellent rate capability.
