In addition to studying purpurin, they are looking at other organic substances that may lead to the production of greener batteries.
Fortunately, biologically based color molecules, like purpurin and its relatives, seem pre-adapted to act as a battery's electrode.
Best of all, purpurin also turns out to be a no-fuss ingredient.
Made and stored at room temperature, the purpurin electrode is made in just a few easy steps: dissolve the purpurin in an alcohol solvent and add lithium salt.
