In the discharge mode, reactions happen in the opposite directions. As discussed in the previous section, the role of the membrane/separator is much more important in a flow battery than that in a solid-state battery, as it prevents the electrolytes containing oxidative and reductive active species from mixing and neutralizing while allowing transport of charge carriers. The general reactions can be written in the following equations, where A and C represent active redox species in the anolyte and catholyte, respectively, and m is the electrochemical potential.
