In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. In the autumn the University’s research outputs will be available to search and browse via a new Research Portal. Until then the University’s full publication record can be accessed via a temporary portal and the old eScholar content is available to search and browse via this archive.

Redox systems were studied to identify electrolytes for redox flow batteries. The criteria for the selection of suitable systems were fast electrochem. kinetics and minimal cross-contamination of active electrolytes. Electrolyte systems were initially selected based on cyclic voltammetry data. Selected systems were then compared by charge/discharge expts. using a simple H-type cell. The all-V electrolyte system was developed as a com. system. The performance of the all-V system was better than the all-Cr system recently reported. Some metal-org. and org. redox systems were reported as possible systems for redox flow batteries, with cyclic voltammetry data suggesting that they could offer near reversible kinetics. However, Ru(acac)3 in MeCN could only be charged efficiently to 9.5% of the theor. charge, after which irreversible side reactions occurred and [Fe(bpy)3](ClO4)2 in MeCN exhibited poor charge/discharge performance.
