Abstract

The ionic conductivity of a liquid crystal electrolyte was switched along with redox reactions of polyviologen. The surface charge of the polymer determined the alignment and the bulk conductivity of the electrolyte. The cooperative switching firstly enabled the suppression of self-discharging and quick-response, giving rise to facile and persistent charge storage.
