Development of an extremely high-potential catholyte leads to the first 3.2 V all-organic flow battery.
Significance and Impact
This work illustrates an attractive integrative strategy for new battery electrolyte development and sets the state-of-the-art voltage window for such systems.
- Mechanistic analysis, computation prediction and chemical synthesis are combined to achieve an unprecedentedly high-potential catholyte.
- This material was paired with a phthalimide derivative to achieve a proof-of-principle 3.2 V all-organic RFB.
