Reversible chemical delithiation/lithiation of LiFePO4: towards a redox flow lithium-ion battery

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reversible chemical delithiation/lithiation of LiFePO4 was successfully demonstrated using ferrocene derivatives, based on which a novel energy storage system — the redox flow lithium-ion battery (RFLB), was devised by integrating the operation flexibility of a redox flow battery and high energy density of a lithium-ion battery. Distinct from the recent semi-solid lithium rechargeable flow battery, the energy storage materials of RFLB stored in separate energy tanks remain stationary upon operation, giving us a fresh perspective on building large-scale energy storage systems with higher energy density and improved safety.
