We all know how the evolution of the battery has become noticeable these days and now, more storage and perhaps more renewable features are on the mend thanks to some researchers over at Harvard.
The researchers have reportedly developed an inexpensive and high capacity organic battery which makes use of carbon-based materials as electrolytes, potentially solving the intermittent generation problems by other renewable resources (solar and wind).
It carries a large volume electricity storage compared to the initial ones presented in the market, cheaper as well.
The Harvard approach utilizes the electrochemistry of quinones, organic molecules that are similar to molecules that store energy in plants and animals and are plentiful in crude oil and green plants.
Using these naturally abundant and inexpensive organic molecules, the researchers have developed a metal-free flow battery that already performs as well as vanadium flow batteries, while using significantly less expensive chemicals and no precious metals.
