One-dimensional Sb2Se3/C rods are prepared through self-assembly by inducing anisotropy, and their corresponding sodium storage behaviors are evaluated, presenting excellent electrochemical performances with superior cycling stability and rate capability. Sb2Se3 delivers a high initial charge capacity of 657.6 mA h g–1 at a current density of 0.2 A g–1 between 2.5 and 0.01 V. After 100 cycles, the reversible capacity of Sb2Se3/C is still retained at 485.2 mA h g–1. Even at a high rate current density of 2.0 A g–1, the charge capacity is still retained at 311.5 mA h g–1. Through the analysis of cyclic voltammetry and in situ electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, the in-depth understanding of high rate performances is explored effectively. Briefly, the sodium storage performance of Sb2Se3/C is observably enhanced, benefiting from the 1D structure and the introduction of a carbon layer with robust structure stability and conductivity.
