dubmaskullanga - excellent find - whilst organic chemists love organic molecules because it gives them great flexibility to play around with structures those self-same structures take advantage of their chemical flexibility to react unhelpfully via so-called 'side-reactions'.

Now calling something a 'side-reaction' just because it is not what you want it is no guarantee that you can get it to go away.

It would seem that there are not simple fundamental arguments why it may be impossible to construct an organic molecule that must be both reactive enough to have sufficient solubility in water (evidently an essential requirement for the free movement of H+ ions) but unreactive enough to not have 'side-reactions'.

The dichotomy is a fundamental one and on reading the paper you can see the reasons why it may actually be impossible could turn out to be really rather complex.

My money is on a simpler energy storage species that has ten times lower volume, no low energy moving parts, and which is 3 times as abundant in the earth's crust as Copper.

When the world realises that it is going to have to start building battery energy storage systems on the scale of 100GWh per year it will simply find a way to increase production from 100,000 tonnes of Vanadium per year to 500,000 tonnes per year.

Long-lived reliable Vanadium Flow technology is available at scale today.

Jagadish - the world really doesn't have an alternative to VRFBs as far as I can see. 'Sustainable Energy without the Hot Air' p 192 suggests that if we are going to use renewables to a major extent we need energy storage on the levels of 1200GWh. THAT IS JUST FOR THE UK.

At present the UK has a total or around 25 GWh total coming from our 4 pumped storage sites,

...3 times as much Vanadium on the planet as Copper.

jagadish - this is a common refrain from US research labs and universities. You have to remember that people in the US think that Vanadium is rare, when in fact there is 3 times as much Vanadium on the planet.

They think this because they have no Vanadium mines - it is the US-centric world view that they are playing to to try and attract research funds, not scientific or economic fact.

not my name - Buzzzipster take a bow.

faramog - indeed we are not playing by the rules by establishing the shipping data ourselves -

We are meant to just be quiet and receive the valuations that our elders and betters hand down to us and not argue. That way their friends in the square mile can make a pretty penny out of our lack of information.

Well I for one am not prepared to put up with that kind of 70's era nonsense any more - which is precisely why I started the Bushveld Perspective...

... and will be launching shortly.

Actually yes I think that is why they are doing it Ludeck - everyone knows that the price will only rerate when the traders turn up - and they need to see big jumps in valuation to pile in.

They are simply kitchen sinking it.

This is nonsense of course

The plot thickens - now 3x 400K trades yesterday at 16:32:32/33 - after yesterday's is it here/is it not with the 686K trades are we going to get the same sort of obfuscation with the 400Ks today ?
