Development of a new catholyte with both extremely high potential and much improved cycling stability.
Significance and Impact
This work illustrates a delineated strategy for new catholyte development and shows a convergent strategy to combine two known redox-active centers to generate a new catholyte material.
- Mechanistic analysis, computation prediction and chemical synthesis are combined for the development of a new generation high-potential catholyte.
- This electrolyte was paired with a viologen derivative to achieve a proof-of-principle 2 V all-organic RFB.
