The electrochemistry group of the DECHEMA-Forschungsinstitut covers a large spectrum of electrochemical methods and material characterization.

Within the frame of this project the electrochemistry is working as a connective link between manufacturers of the single components (electrolyte, electrode, catalyst, membrane) and users of the redox flow system. Analysis of the efficiency and stability of the components will be carried out by the electrochemistry group and the single components as well as their joint action will be characterized.

Special interest will be gained on the stability of the components under relevant conditions.

The scientific findings will be assembled to a catalogue of requirements for quality of redox-flow-batteries and their electrodes, membranes and electrolytes.
