Title: Methanesulfonic acid-based electrode-decoupled vanadium–cerium redox flow battery exhibits significantly improved capacity and cycle life

Abstract

V–Ce RFBs (∼100% CE and ∼70% EE over 100 cycles) using a CH 3 SO 3 H-based electrolyte and a AEM separator shows 30% higher capacity and 0.024% capacity fade/cycle vs. 5% capacity fade/cycle for H 2 SO 4 supported V–Ce ED-RFBs.
