High power organic cathodes using thin films of electropolymerized benzidine polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Thin films of benzidine polymers were electrochemically deposited directly onto conductive substrates by oxidative coupling of di- and trianilinoalkane monomers. The electropolymerization and electrochemical properties of the polymers were optimized by varying the alkyl linker. Polymer films exhibited two reversible one-electron transfers at high potentials (>3.3 V vs. Li/Li+) and maintained discharge capacities in excess of 150 mA h g−1 even when discharged in under 4 seconds.
