ESR project
This subproject is aiming at developing novel redox-active species and compatible membranes for organic redox flow battery systems. More precisely, it will focus on the synthesis of redox-active polymers, investigating new membranes from other ESRs within the FlowCamp project for compatibility, optimizing parameters for the researched ORFB systems, finally ending up with well-developed test cell for ORFBs.
