Nitroxide radical polymers – a versatile material class for high-tech applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nitroxides are a versatile class of stable free radicals that have long established themselves in a wide range of applications. Their incorporation into macromolecular architectures has added a further dimension to their utility beyond their initial limitations. The rise of nitroxide radical polymers in the recent past has led to several remarkable breakthroughs in diverse fields such as medical imaging and energy storage applications. This review will present a comprehensive summary of synthetic strategies available for the preparation of nitroxide radical polymer materials and a state-of-the-art perspective on their latest and most exciting applications.
