Title: Concentrated mixed cation acetate “water-in-salt” solutions as green and low-cost high voltage electrolytes for aqueous batteries

Abstract

Challenge of developing new formulations of water-in-salt electrolytes are addressed via mixed cation strategy: cheaper (by at least an order of magnitude) and more soluble salts featuring alkali cations beyond lithium, such as potassium, are used to create the water-in-salt condition.
