Current lithium ion battery technologies suffer from challenges derived from the eco-toxicity, costliness, and energetic inefficiency of contemporary inorganic materials used in these devices. 1,1’diethylferrocene was studied which turned out to be successful as a potential half-cell to the battery. The ferroin complex was then looked at to complete the battery system which was also successful, so a test of the two systems as a battery system was carried out, with a voltage of +0.240V being observed, however the anti-dandruff shampoo was studied due to the zinc pyrithione this was studied successfully; cerium was then also studied due to its potential of giving rise to large voltages. Initially a low concentration of thallium was tested (1mM) where a voltage of +832mV was observed, which was promising so 10mM and 50mM of the thallium were tested with the shampoo where voltages of +1.306V and +1.503V for each concentration respectively.
