In situ electro-synthesis and resynthesis of redox actives in aqueous organic redox flow batteries

We report in situ continuous anthraquinone electrosyntheses from lower-cost anthracene feedstock in a flow cell reactor to lower mass production cost of anthraquinone-based electrolytes, and in situ electro-resyntheses of active molecules from decomposed species to extend lifetime of aqueous anthraquinone redox flow batteries.

Nanoscale iron catalysts for scalable and selective deuteration of (hetero)arenes

We have developed a general methodology for heterogeneous iron-catalysed deuteration reactions. The catalytic system is effective for selective deuteration of anilines, indoles, phenols, and other heterocyclic compounds including late-stage labelling of natural products as well as bioactive molecules and can be readily used for the preparation of deuterated compounds on kg-scale.
