Morphology-controlled MoS2 nanosheets were successfully synthesized with the aid of graphene/acid coexistence by a one-pot hydrothermal method. The ultrathin MoS2 nanosheets were self-assembled into a cockscomb-like structure with an exposed (100) facet on graphene sheets, which is in strong contrast to large aggregate MoS2 plates grown freely on graphene sheets without acetic acid. The ultrathin MoS2 nanosheets displayed excellent rate performance for Li storage (709 mAh·g -1 capacity at 8320 mA·g-1 discharging rate) and superior charge/discharge cyclability.
