Redox flow battery (RFB) has been widely considered to be one of the most promising grid-scale energy-storage technology. The membrane, namely separator, serves as preventing the crossover of the positive and negative active species, while facilitating the transport of the supporting electrolyte ions, is crucial to achieve a high performance and a long-term stability for an RFB. Advances in RFBs require high-performance and low-cost membranes with high ion-selective transport for the application of large-scale energy storage. Two-dimensional (2D) materials have emerged as promising functional materials owing to their atomic-scale thickness and unique physical/chemical properties, which have great potential in the application of RFB membrane. Focusing on the recent state-of-the-art of 2D materials, in this mini review, various 2D materials applied in the membrane for RFB are briefly introduced. A perspective on the near-future developments of 2D materials in RFB membranes is presented.
