Abstract [en]

To solve for future energy needs, capacity of storing energy will be crucial. In principle all of today’s batteries are made of metals, which are energy demanding to extract and recycle, as well as being non-renewable. A proposed alternative is to make batteries with same or higher charge capacity from renewable sources. Electrodes can be based on conducting redox polymers (CRPs) consisting of a polymeric backbone, such as PEDOT, with redox active side groups attached. As side groups, quinone derivatives can be utilized. Quinones function as charge carrier in nature’s photosynthesis. For a functioning battery application, redox group and polymer must be active in the same potential window and this can be tuned by changing functionality of the side groups. This project aims at finding and synthesizing high charge capacity CRP materials and targeting renewable organic batteries for a future of sustainable energy storage.
