Redox-mediated separation systems offer the potential to efficiently desalinate water and to purify contaminated waste streams, among other health and environmental applications. A TCAQ-based polymer, unique for its two-electron redox reaction, was synthesized for use in redox-mediated separation systems, and its performance was quantified in low-concentration aqueous salt solutions. The polyvinyl ferrocene (PVF)//PTCAQ system displayed an ion adsorption capacity much higher than previously reported literature values for capacitive or redox deionization systems.
