Tin in Other Battery Technologies
A number of other battery technologies are under development, particularly for larger scale utility power storage. For tin there may be opportunities in liquid metal technologies or as a catalyst in redox flow batteries for example. Some very recent work on ion-exchanging technologies includes tin as a possible metal ion candidate.n interest.
A team at University of Kentucky have patented a liquid metal battery using tin and bismuth electrodes, with molten zinc chloride, for grid-scale energy storage. The Liquid Metal Battery (LMB) concept is decades old but has been first re-invented in modern times by...
