Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Galvinoxyl radical, known as a stable organic radical, was selected as a new candidate for a cathodeand/or anode-active material for a secondary battery. Styrene derivative bearing the galvinoxyl radical was synthesized via four steps, and polymerized to give the precursor polymer (Mn=10 4). Chemical oxidation yielded the corresponding radical polymer. The obtained polymer was characterized by spectroscopic measurements. Electrochemical measurements revealed its stable redox behavior. The cell performance will also be reported.
