High capacity and long cycle life are both desirable features for practical secondary cells. In this study, we compare two different synthesis processes for preparing active materials for lithium/sulfur cells using polysulfide and graphene oxide (GO) showing high sulfur utilization and cycling stability. The key factor determining cell performance is the oxygen-containing functional groups on GO and the fine structures. This study shows the possibility of application of GO for enhanced capacity and cycling stability.
