Title: A strategically managed rechargeable battery system with a neutral methyl viologen anolyte and an acidic air-cathode enabled by a mediator-ion solid electrolyte

Abstract

A “mediator-ion” solid-electrolyte membrane strategy enables the operation of methyl viologen–air batteries with a neutral anolyte and an acidic catholyte.
