niccolai macrogiovaniCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Francesca Niccolai for winning one of the best presentations at Macrogiovani 2022, an event organized by "Associazione Italiana di Scienze e Tecnologie delle Macromolecole" (AIM) in Florence. The title of her presentation was "Next-generation composite polymeric membranes for semi-organic redox flow batteries". Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are promising candidates for large-scale energy storage thanks to their long service lifetimes, relatively low capital costs, and independent scaling of energy and power density. The membrane is a pivotal component of RFBs as it determines the performance as well as the economic viability of the batteries.

Her work is focused on the development of composite membranes starting from a microporous polymeric substrate on which a polymerizable solution of N-vinylpyrrolidone (VP), a complexing agent for bromine species is deposited.
