A Novel Graphite-Graphite Dual Ion Battery Using an AlCl3 -[EMIm]Cl Liquid Electrolyte.The data that support the plots within this paper and other finding of this study are available from the corresponding author upon reasonable request. Graphite dual-ion batteries represent a potential battery concept for large-scale stationary storage of electricity, especially when constructed free of lithium and other chemical elements with limited natural reserves. Owing to their non-rocking-chair operation mechanism, however, the practical deployment of graphite dual-ion batteries is inherently limited by the need for large quantities of electrolyte solutions as reservoirs of all ions that are needed for complete charge and discharge of the electrodes. Thus far, lithium-free graphite dual-ion batteries have employed moderately concentrated electrolyte solutions 0. The worldwide increase in energy consumption and the intermittent nature of renewable sources e. The International Electrotechnical Commission reported that within the next 30 years, the current available capacity of ESS ca. In this context, large and inexpensive stationary rechargeable batteries should be used in combination with the more traditional pumped hydroelectric storage PHS , which arguably has reached or is approaching its maximum usable capacity 1.

A Novel Graphite-Graphite Dual Ion Battery Using an AlCl3 -[EMIm]Cl Liquid Electrolyte.
Aqueous aluminium-ion rechargeable batteries AAIBs have attracted lots of attention due to their high theoretical capacity, high volumetric energy density and low price. We propose a full aluminum-ion battery AIB using such an aqueous electrolyte.

Dual-ion batteries DIBs , in which both cations and anions are involved in the electrochemical redox reaction, comprise a promising candidate to meet the low-cost requirements of commercial applications. Compared with conventional lithium-ion batteries LIBs , they have advantages like high working voltage, excellent safety, and environmental friendliness. A research team led by Prof. Tang Yongbing and Dr. DIBs have attracted worldwide attention for their high working voltage, low cost, ease of recycling, and low environmental impact, etc.
