The polymerization of 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-4-yl methacrylate (TMPM) by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) is studied. The successful polymerization of styrene from PTMPM-Cl macroinitiators by ATRP is then demonstrated, affording PTMPM-b-PS diblock copolymers. Oxidation of the PTMPM-b-PS block copolymer leads to poly(2,2,6,6-tetramethylpipridinyloxy-4-ylmethacrylate)-b-poly(styrene) (PTMA-b-PS). The cyclic voltammogram of PTMA-b-PS indicates a reversible redox reaction at 3.6 V (vs. Li+/Li). Such block copolymers open new opportunities for the formation of new organic cathodic materials.
