Application of Redox Non-Innocent Ligands to Non-Aqueous Flow Battery Electrolytes

Authors


Abstract

High energy-density, redox flow batteries (RFB) can provide cost-effective, grid-scale energy storage, facilitating the use of intermittent sources such as solar and wind power. A new electrolyte based on vanadium and redox-active ligands that stores equivalents of charge separately from the metal center is presented. Electrolytes composed of non-innocent ligands greatly enhance both the energy density and stability of non-aqueous RFBs
