Energetic Control of Redox‐Active Polymers toward Safe Organic Bioelectronic Materials Advanced Materials, March 2020
The goal of Alexander Giovannitti’s research is to develop a recyclable battery based on solution-processable organic materials. To accomplish this, electrode materials will be designed to efficiently store electronic and ionic charges with safe electrolytes. Additionally, all materials used will be non-toxic and environmentally friendly. This will allow Alex to develop a recycling process for the battery and open up new pathways to explore sustainable electrochemical energy storage devices. The key to the development of scalable recyclable energy storage devices will be the ability to allow for processing electrode and electrolyte materials from solution. This will pave the way for the low-cost production of the battery (e.g. printing of batteries).
