Batteries based on fluoride shuttle

Author affiliations


In search of new concepts to build batteries with high energy densities, electrochemical cells based on metal fluorides may be promising. Herein, we report the demonstration of secondary battery cells based on fluoride shuttle. In fluoride ion batteries, fluoride anion acts as charge transfer ion between a metal/metal fluoride pair where it will react with metal or evolve from metal fluoride depending on the flow of current.
