Abstract

original image

Inkjet printing can be used to manufacture flexible organic radical battery (ORB) electrodes. A reactive printing approach based on the thermal crosslinking of amine bearing redoxactive radical polymers is developed. The printed electrodes are stable for over one hundred charging/discharging cycles.
