The development of batteries that perform efficient storage of electricity and allow the development of light, thin and even flexible multifunctional electronic devices, represents today a market demand of our society. In the light of the foregoing, the present project aims the development of anode and cathode electrodes for Lithium-ion batteries based on paper, trough the combination of differentiated electronic and structural properties of carbon nanotubes and nanosheets of molybdenum disulphide (metallic phase, MoS2 1T), with the porosity of the nanocellulose. The anode and cathode electrodes will be evaluated based on their specific capacity, power, cycle numbers and lifetime. (AU)
