Redox active polymers: the future for batteries?

Our next RSC event is a lecture by Prof. Jean-François Gohy on the future of batteries. The presentation focuses on the development of novel energy storage systems with enhanced performances using original, organic, electro-active, material chemistry and engineering approaches. The primary target is to decipher the fundamental flaws and build better organic batteries. The long-term goal is to develop sustainable all-carbon-based batteries. The research aims to design and develop novel electro-active organic materials and architectures in order to develop faster, safer, and longer-lasting organic batteries, capacitors, and their hybrids.
