Towards a thermally regenerative all-copper redox flow battery

Abstract

An all-copper redox flow battery based on strong complexation of Cu+ with acetonitrile is demonstrated, exhibiting reasonable battery performance. More interestingly, the battery can be charged by heat sources of 100 °C, by distilling off the acetonitrile. This destabilizes the Cu+ complex, leading to recovery of the starting materials.
