In this work we describe the synthesis and electrochemical evaluation of a novel imidazole based magnesium-Hückel salt as electrolyte system for rechargeable magnesium-ion batteries. This conductive salt, when applied in organic, aprotic solvents, enables both, the use of metallic magnesium as well as insertion materials as negative electrodes for rechargeable magnesium-ion batteries.
