Iontronics of Redox Flow Batteries


1st and 2nd of July 2021, 10-15:30 CEST

In this scientific meeting, jointly organized by the IontronicsNL and UK-RFB networks, we cover the basic science required for understanding the wide range of iontronic processes in redox-flow batteries.  We will also present the latest research results on this rapidly expanding and promising solution for sustainable electrochemical energy storage.

The program consists of didactic invited lectures (day 1) and research presentations (day 2) from the community focused mostly on recent innovative results for Redox-Flow Batteries.

Invited speakers:

  • Marnix Wagemaker (Technical Univerity - Delft)
  • Maria Perez-Page (University of Manchester)
  • Jouke Dykstra (Wageningen University & Research)
  • Kathryn Toghill (University of Lancaster)
  • Maarten Voors (Wageningen University & Research)
  • Rathod Suman (IISC Bangalore)

Link to the registration form (Free of charge)

Abstract submission:  

We invite those who are interested to submit abstracts for short research presentations through the registration form. Abstracts are welcome from students to supervisors and from academia to industry. 

The deadline for abstract submission is Thursday June 17th, 2021.



Past events

The first IontronicsNL meeting was held on 11 October 2019, in Utrecht.

We discussed some of the most recent experimental, theoretical, and numerical methods applied to this field (e.g. atomic force microscopy, single-molecule spectroscopy, nanofluidics, dynamic density functional theory) and reviewed some of the existing challenges, both in fundamental research (e.g. understanding nanoscale ion transport) as well as in industrial applications (e.g. membrane technology, energy storage).

Invited speakers

  • Susan Perkin (Oxford)
  • Maarten Biesheuvel (Wetsus)
  • Rob Lammertink (Twente)
  • Ben Erne (Utrecht) 
  • Peter Ngene (Utrecht) 
  • Serge Lemay (Twente) 
  • Frieder Mugele (Twente)
