Thibaut Gutel, research scientist from CEA has recently presented some results about printed organic batteries developed in the framework of Prestige project during the Material Research Society (MRS) spring meeting and exhibit. The 2019 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience and a specific symposium (ES01) was dedicated to “Organic Materials in Electrochemical Energy Storage”. It was focused on the last development of this field, and offered an opportunity for researchers to exchange technical information and network with colleagues. It took place from April 22-26, 2019 in Phoenix Arizona.
The main purpose of Thibault Gutel’s talk was to describe the development of Organic Electrode materials for Anion-ion batteries based on new electroactive polymers. Indeed, organic electroactive compounds such as nitroxide based polymers and polyviologene offer a cost-effective and an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional electrode materials for electrochemical storage. But until now, their use is still challenging due to low life cycle usually related to their high solubility in organic solvents of electrolytes. The research carried out by CEA as well as within the framework of Prestige project aims to develop organic electrode based battery with high electrochemical performances, a notable advance in this field.
