Aqueous organic redox flow batteries stand as a promising alternative to vanadium as, based on the use of readily available organic molecules as redox-active material, they offer great versatility in terms of energy density, working voltage, and stability.
Researchers at CIC energiGUNE have been developed low-cost and non-toxic redox electrolyte compounds with high water-solubility, fast kinetics, and involving reversible and multiple proton-coupled electron-transfer redox reactions to be used as anolyte or/and catholyte in a redox flow battery. Thanks to an innovative strategy the solubility of organic compounds, barely soluble in water, was boosted impacting the energy density and performance strongly.
