Abstract  Pyrite FeS2 exhibits an ultrahigh energy density (1671 W·h·kg-1, for the reaction of FeS2+4Li=Fe+2Li2S) in secondary lithium-ion batteries, but its poor cycling stability, huge volume expansion, the shuttle effect of polysulfides, and slow kinetic properties limit its practical application. In this work, we synthesize a composite structure material CoS on FeS2 surface (FeSx@CoS, 1 < x ≤ 2) by using a cobalt-containing MOF to improve its cycle stability. It is found that CoS inhibits the side reactions and adsorbs polysulfides. As a result, the modified FeS2 shows a higher discharge capacity of 577 mA·h·g-1 (919 W·h·kg-1) after 60 cycles than 484 mA·h·g-1 (778 W·h·kg-1) of bare pyrite FeS2. This efficient strategy provides a valuable step toward the realization of high cycling stability FeS2 cathode materials for secondary lithium-ion batteries and enriches the basic understanding of the influence of FeS2 interfacial stability on its electrochemical performances.
