The effects of the three cationic surfactants on the microstructures and electrochemical performances of the composites for reversible lithium storage were investigated. The MoS 2 in the composites prepared with assistance of DTAB or OTAB displays single-/few-layer structure, while the layered MoS2 sheets with about 6-7 layers are observed in the composite prepared with assistance of TBAB. The former two composites exhibit greatly enhanced electrochemical performance for reversible Li+ storage. In particular, MoS2/graphene composite prepared with assistance of OTAB delivered a high reversible capacity of 1056 mA h g-1 with excellent cycle stability and good rate capability. The significant improvement in the electrochemical performances is attributed to the roubest composite structure and the synergistic interactions between graphene and single-/few-layer MoS2. This work also presented a facile process to prepare MoS2/graphene composites, in which the layer number of MoS2 sheets could be adjusted to a certain extent by using different cationic surfactants.
