An explanation for why flow batteries using the metal cerium in a sulfuric acid electrolyte fall short on voltage, discovered through a study led by the University of Michigan, could pave the way for better battery chemistry. One of the challenges with cerium is figuring out how to make electric charges transfer to and from the electrode efficiently. Researchers were able to develop a better understanding of cerium and its applications to improve battery composition.
