Recently, Xiaoqiang Liu group published a new paper in Chemical Communications on Jun. 29, 2020, the title is “An integrated energy-efficient electrochromic device for salt water purification”. In this paper, the author report a multifunctional device with an integrated energy-desalination-smart electrochromic display in one single cell. Specifically, a novel chemically assisted electrochromic desalination set-up was demonstrated using a Prussian blue cathode and an anode comprising Ag or a redox polymer film in salt water without any external electrical energy usage.
