As a part of studies for finding metal complexes as an active material in the redox-flow battery system using ionic liquids (ILs) as an electrolyte, we have measured cyclic voltammograms (CVs) of betainium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide ([Hbet][Tf 2 N]) (H 2 O content: 11 wt%) dissolving Na[Fe III (edta)(H 2 O)] (edta = ethylenediamine-N,N,N′,N′-tetraacetate). Two peaks corresponding to one redox couple were observed around 50 and 220 mV vs. Ag/AgCl and assigned as a quasi-reversible redox
