Natural molecule to boost the performance of electrodes for rechargeable batteries


(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) Chlorophyll, blood, and vitamin B12 are all based on the porphyrin molecule. But porphyrin can also be used as an electrode material where it speeds up the charging process of rechargeable batteries. In the 'Angewandte Chemie International Edition' journal, researchers from KIT now present the new material system that could mark the beginning of an era of high-performance energy storage and supercapacitors.
