Nowadays, the energy demands increase along with the enhance lifestyle and the increase of population, so that alternative energy sources are needed to meet the demand. Several renewable energy has been developed, but the low capacity energy storage system makes the energy that has been produced is partially lost. Lithium-sulfur battery is one of a promising energy storage system due to its high energy density, inexpensive material, and abundant in nature. However, the current problem despite the high energy density is the low life cycles due to the dissolution of sulfur into the electrolyte. Research on lithium-sulfur batteries was carried out in 1962 by Hebert et al., but it has some disadvantages, such as a low discharge capacity and short cycle times. Various studies have been developed to solve these problems. In this review, we will discuss the electrochemical process on lithium-sulfur batteries and the method of a lithium-sulfur battery cathode manufacturing to give information to the researcher about the recent development of lithium-sulfur cathode manufacturing. The present review will discuss both physical and chemical manufacturing methods.
