Abstract

Sulfur-rich copolymers based on poly(sulfur-random-1,3- diisopropenylbenzene) (poly(S-r-DIB)) were synthesized via inverse vulcanization to create cathode materials for lithium-sulfur battery applications. These materials exhibit enhanced capacity retention (1005 mAh/g at 100 cycles) and battery lifetimes over 500 cycles at a C/10 rate. These poly(S-r-DIB) copolymers represent a new class of polymeric electrode materials that exhibit one of the highest charge capacities reported, particularly after extended charge-discharge cycling in Li-S batteries.
