Thermal polymerization of a conjugated polymer is performed directly on the device electrode using solution-processable monomers. On page 3549, W. G. Skene and co-workers report that the resulting immobilized polymer is electroactive and it is reversibly switched electrotrochemically between its colored states. The polymer is successfully used as the electrochromic layer in a working device with repeated color switching.
