A better battery: One-time pollutant may become valued product to aid wind, solar energy

(Oregon State University) Chemists have discovered that one or more organic compounds in a family that traditionally has been known as pollutants could offer an important advance to make cheap, reliable batteries. They could be particularly useful in the storage of wind and solar energy until it is needed.
