  • Publication number: 20210403647
    Abstract: Compositions and methods related to conducting polymeric compositions that can be used for the storage of electrical energy are generally provided. In some embodiments, the composition comprises redox active polymers comprising an electrophilic nitrogen containing heterocycle and an electron rich aromatic compound. In some embodiments, the composition comprises a triazine-based polymer. The electroactive polymers may be formed, in some cases, by polymerizing an electrophilic nitrogen containing heterocycle-based unit with an electron rich aromatic compound in the presence of heat and an acid-based catalyst. The resulting electroactive polymers may be suitable as polymer films for use as electrodes in energy storage devices. The polymer films disposed as electrodes can improve the energy density of such devices.
