The application of novel organic redox materials is a plausible pathway towards techno-economic energy storage targets due to their low cost and sustainable design. Their operation in non-aqueous redox flow batteries affords researchers the opportunity to innovate, design and optimise these new chemistries towards practical energy densities. Despite this, the identification of high capacity organics which also display long-term stability is inherently challenging due to the high reactivity of molecular radicals.
