Flower-like MoS2 supported on three-dimensional graphene aerogel (MoS2/GA) composite has been prepared by a facile hydrothermal method followed by subsequent heat-treatment process. Each of MoS2 microflowers is surrounded by the three-dimensional graphene nanosheets. The MoS2/GA composite is applied as an anode material of sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) and it exhibits high initial discharge/charge capacities of 562.7 and 460 mAh g−1 at a current density of 0.1 A g−1 and good cycling performance (348.6 mAh g−1 after 30 cycles at 0.1 A g−1). The good Na+ storage properties of the MoS2/GA composite could be attributed to the unique structure which flower-like MoS2 are homogeneously and tightly decorated on the surface of three-dimensional graphene aerogel. Our results demonstrate that as-prepared MoS2/GA composite has a great potential prospect as anodes for SIBs.
