Abstract:

This program was directed to the use of highly electroactive, conjugated polymers as the active redox materials in electrochemical supercapacitors. Such materials include electrochemically polymerizable dimethyl substituted poly3,4-propylenedioxythiop hene PProDOT-Me2, poly3,4-propylenedioxypyrrole PProDOP, poly3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene PEDOT for Type I or Type II supercapacitors, along with donor-acceptor-donor D-A-D polymers which provide reductive states for Type Ill supercapacitors. In addition, we have evaluated several solution-processable as alkoxy substituted PProDOTs and PProDOT-PEDOT co-polymers.
