Electrochemical power sources consisted of electroconducting polymers combined to electronegative metals and aqueous based electrolytes are likely to accomplish most of the three E criteria (Energy, Economics and Environment) elaborated as the determining factors of an electrochemical power system success. In such systems electroconducting polymers, mainly polyaniline (PANI) due to their ability of reversible oxidation (doping)/reduction (dedoping) could be used as cathodic materials, while owing to relatively low discharge potentials, it is necessary to use electronegative metals such as: magnesium, aluminum and zinc as anodic materials.
