Two pendant-type naphthalene diimide (NDI) polymers bearing a polynorbornene backbone were prepared and their electrochemical properties explored. The NDI-based polymers displayed reversible redox responses in 1 M LiClO4 γ-butyrolactone electrolyte. Polymer 1, bearing a N-methyl group, exhibited remarkable charge-storage capabilities which demonstrated its potential usefulness as an organic cathode-active material in rechargeable devices with excellent performances such as large charge capacity, high rate capability, and charge-discharge cyclability.
