A simple synthetic process is demonstrated for the preparation of MnS/carbon nanotube (CNT) composites for Li ion battery electrodes. CNTs were initially treated using a strong acid solution to generate carboxylate ions ($-COO^-$) on their surfaces. The MnS/CNT composites were synthesized by a polyvinyl-pyrrolidone-assisted hydrothermal method in the presence of as-functionalized CNTs. The phase and morphology of the MnS/CNT composites and pure MnS microspheres were characterized using X-ray diffraction and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Furthermore, the Li electroactivity levels of the MnS/CNT composites and MnS microspheres were investigated using cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic cycling. The MnS/CNT composite electrodes showed higher specific capacities exceeding 365 $mA;h;g^{-1}$ at a C/10 current rate and enhanced cyclic performance compared to pure MnS microspheres.
