Lamellar molybdenum disulfide (MoS 2 ) has attracted a wide range of research interests in recent years because of its two-dimensional layered structured, ultrathin thickness, large interlayer distance, adjustable band gap and capability to form different crystal structure. These special characteristics and high anisotropy had made MoS 2 to be widely applied in energy storage and harvesting. In this review, a systematic and comprehensive introduction of MoS 2 and its composites is presented. It is aimed to summarize the various synthesis methods of MoS 2 based composites and their application in energy storage devices (lithium ion batteries, sodium ion batteries, lithium sulfur battery and supercapacitors) in detail. Based on our related work and recent researches by other groups, this review provides important and comprehensive guidelines for further study and development efforts of the MoS 2 in energy storage ﬁeld.
