摘要：Design and synthesis of capable anode materials that can store the large size K+is the key of development for potassium–ion batteries. The low–cost and commercial expanded graphite with large particles is a graphite–derived material with good conductivity and enlarged interlayer spaces to boost the potassium ion diffusion coefficient during charge/discharge process. Thus, we achieve excellent anode performance for potassium–ion batteries based on an expanded graphite. It can deliver a capacity of 263 mAh g−1at the rate of 10 mA g−1and the reversible capacity remains almost unchanged after 500 cycles at a high rate of 200 mA g−1with a coulombic efficiency of around 100%. The potassium storage mechanism is investigated by the ex situ XRD technique. This excellent potassium storage performance will make the expanded graphite promising anode candidate for potassium ion batteries.
