1. An electrochromic medium for use in a normally operating electrochromic device, comprising:

  • an anodic material and a cathodic material, wherein both of the anodic and cathodic materials are electroactive and at least one of the anodic and cathodic materials is electrochromic; and

    an additive, wherein the additive is more easily reduced than the cathodic material, and wherein the additive substantially precludes the formation of a residual reduced cathodic material while the electrochromic medium is in a high transmission state.
