Eco-friendly batteries will work on plant extracts

A group of scientists working with the City Kollezhd in New York, Rice University and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, has announced that in the near future it will be possible to completely replace our usual lithium-ion batteries for analogs, which are raw materials for the manufacture of herbal extracts .

New eco-friendly batteries will be made with a purpurin, red dye substances extracted from madder root, a common enough herb. Both the purpurin and accompanying natural dyes are molecules whose behavior is very similar to conventional electrodes penlight batteries. Purpurin molecule consists of six-membered rings connected with carbonyl
