Paper accepted in Angewandte Chemie

Great news! Our paper on a new molecular design concept for organic battery electrodes based on π‐conjugated macrocycles has been accepted.


We report highly stable organic battery electrode materials using the conjugated macrocycle [2.2.2.2]paracyclophane‐1,9,17,25‐tetraene (PCT). The compound can stabilize both the neutral and reduced state by aromaticity, enabling batteries with extraordinarily stable cycling performance and outstanding performance under fast‐charge/discharge conditions.


Congratulations to first authors Simon Eder and Dong-Joo Yoo!

We would like to thank all collaborators, in particular Prof. Jang Wook Choi at Seoul National University.
