SONAR will present a first functional demonstrator for the simulation-based screening of organic active materials for novel redox flow batteries

This year SONAR will share a booth with the German-Australian Alliance for Electrochemical Storage for Renewable Energy (CENELEST) at Smart Energy 2022 in Sydney, Australia. For the first time, a functional demonstrator will be presented for the high-throughput screening method to be developed in SONAR. The demonstrator allows the calculation of parameters such as redox potentials and cell voltages on the basis of optimised scale models. The user can enter structural formulae of organic chemical compounds and obtain the results within a few seconds. The high-throughput screening will later be able to select, from hundreds of thousands of organic compounds, those with the highest potential for application as active materials for novel redox flow batteries, and also calculate their properties.

The Smart Energy Council Conference and Exhibition is the largest meeting place for renewable energy topics in Australia, and will take place this year on 4-5 May at the ICC in Sydney, Australia.
