Carbonaceous porous electrodes are performance-defining components of redox flow batteries as they provide surfaces for electrochemical reactions, conduct electrons and heat, and distributing fluids. However, our current arsenal of materials is limited to fibrous electrodes which have not been tailored to the unique challenges of redox flow batteries. Thus, there is the need to develop novel material sets with precise control over microstructure and composition, while employing synthetic methods that are compatible with large scale manufacturing. In this presentation, I will discuss a novel approach to synthesize porous electrodes suitable for redox flow batteries.
