The nitroxide radical is expected as an electrode active material of secondary battery. We synthesized polystyrene derivatives bearing nitroxide radical and investigated their electrochemical properties. Styrene monomer was synthesized from 5-bromo-2-aminobenzotrifluoride via four step reactions. The obtained styrene monomer was polymerized by radical polymerization and oxidized to its radical derivative. Electrochemical property of the radical polymer was examined by cyclic voltammetry. The formal potential was -0.76 V.
