Abstract
Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are some of the most promising energy storage systems because of their design flexibility; however, their low energy density is a major drawback limiting widespread application. Most conventional approaches to increase the energy density have involved exploiting high-concentration electrolytes. However, this approach results in many technical issues, such as sluggish kinetics. We propose a strategy of boosting the energy density by exploiting a multi-redox phenazine molecule (5,10-dihydro-5,10-dimethyl phenazine [DMP]). DMPZ exhibits double-redox activity at 0.15 and 0.61 V versus Ag/Ag+ with remarkable kinetics and chemical stability. Coupled with 9-fluorenone (FL), the DMPZ/FL flow cell can provide the highest energy density permole (z85Whrmol1) ever reported for RFBs. Furthermore, the marked color change of DMPZ enables the state of charge to be precisely visualized. This novel strategy for a multi-redox material can provide a potential pathway toward high-energy-density RFBs.
