Nanosize zinc sulfides were synthesized through the chemical reaction method. The as-prepared zinc sulfide nanopowders were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and electrochemical testing. The results revealed that zinc sulfide electrodes exhibited a reversible lithium storage capacity of about 400 mAh/g with stable cyclability. Zinc sulfide nanopowders show promise as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries.
