Abstract: Aqueous Zn ion batteries (ZIBs) are promising in energy storage due to the low cost, high safety, and material abundance. The development of metal oxides as the cathode for ZIBs is limited by the strong electrostatic forces between O2? and Zn2+ which leads to poor cyclic stability. Herein, Bi2S3 is proposed as a promising cathode material for rechargeable aqueous ZIBs. Improved cyclic stability and fast diffusion of Zn2+ is observed. Also, the layered structure of Bi2S3 with the weak van der Waals interaction between layers offers paths for diffusion and occupancy of Zn2+. As a result, the Zn/Bi2S3 battery delivers high capacity of 161 mAh g?1 at 0.2 A g?1 and good cycling stability up to 100 cycles with ca. 100% retention. The battery also demonstrates good cyclic performance of ca. 80.3% over 2000 cycles at 1 A g?1. The storage mechanism in the Bi2S3 cathode is related to the reversible Zn ion intercalation/extraction reactions and the capacitive contribution. This work indicates that Bi2S3 shows great potential as the cathode of ZIBs with good performance and stability.[Figure not available: see fulltext.]. © 2019, © 2019, The Author(s).
