Abstract:

Redox-flow batteries (RFBs) are promising candidates for sustainable energy storage systems. Compared to traditional inorganic RFBs, TEMPO-based RFBs is more advantageous in low cost, high voltage, excellent reversibility and tunable redox-active material structure. In this article, we review the research progress of RFBs using TEMPO and its derivatives as redox-active materials, introduce the related experimental methods and propose the plausible directions for future research.

Key words: TEMPO, Organic redox-flow battery, Electrochemistry, Energy-storage system, Organic redox-active material
