Mg-Ion Battery Electrode: An Organic Solid's Herringbone Structure Squeezed upon Mg-Ion Insertion.

Abstract

We report that crystalline 3,4,9,10-perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride (PTCDA), an organic solid, is highly amenable to host divalent metal ions, i.e., Mg2+ and Ca2+, in aqueous electrolytes, where the van der Waals structure is intrinsically superior in hosting charge-dense ions. We observe that the divalent nature of Mg2+ causes unique squeezing… (More)
