The charging and discharging mechanism of a prototype organic radical-based lithium-ion battery, where the p-type nitroxide radical polymer forms a cathode operated in conjunction with a carbon anode, are discussed. During the charging process, the p-type radical polymer in the cathode is oxidized to the oxoammonium form. During the discharging process, the nitroxide radical is regenerated by reduction of the oxoammonium. The organic radical polymer has solvent solubility and processability, which facilitates battery manufacture through a wet, printable, and rollable process.
