Opportunity for more sustainable energy with new hydronium-ion battery

The world’s first battery to use only hydronium ions as the charge carrier has been been developed by scientists.

A new type of battery developed by scientists at Oregon State University shows promise for sustainable, high-power energy storage.

Hydronium, also known as H3O+, is a positively charged ion produced when a proton is added to a water molecule. Researchers in the OSU College of Science have demonstrated that hydronium ions can be reversibly stored in an electrode material consisting of perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydridem, or PTCDA.
