Redox chemistry

In the field of redox chemistry, electrolyte formulations for all-vanadium redox-flow batteries are developed and optimized. In addition, formulations for other flow battery systems are investigated, electrochemically tested and characterized in a cell test. Particular attention is paid to electrolytes for bromine-based and organic redox-flow batteries, as well as vanadium-air systems.
