The exfoliated graphite containing sulfur cathode material was prepared by the high temperature sulfur gas diffusion adsorption method.This cathode material could obtain an initial discharge specific capacity 972 mAh·g-1,capacity retention ratio 78% and cycling efficiency above 80%,respectively.The exfoliated graphite containing sulfur cathode could decrease the reaction interphase charge transfer impedance,and restrain the sulfur or polysulfide shuttle phenomenon during the charge-discharge process through improving the diffusion impedance.
