Electrolytic molybdenum oxydisulfides are synthesized out of aqueous molybdate solutions containing sulfur in the presence of ions of Ni2+ with the aim of applying them as materials for ballastless cathodes of thin-layer lithium batteries. The physicochemical and structural properties of the synthesized compounds are studied profilometrically and by methods of thermal and x-ray diffraction analyses, absorption IR spectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy. Specific discharge characteristics, the chemical diffusion coefficient of lithium ions, the interaction parameter of intercalated ions, and the repulsion energy of intercalated ions in the process of intercalation and deintercalation of lithium ions in the synthesized materials are determined.
