    Abstract

    A three-fold symmetric trioxotriangulene derivative with three pyridyl groups as coordinating sites was designed and synthesized. In a cyclic voltammetry measurement, the trioxotriangulene skeleton exhibited a multi-stage redox ability from neutral radical to radical tetra-anion species. In the zinc complex of monoanion species, three pyridyl groups coordinated to the zinc ion to build up a two-dimensional coordination network with a cavity larger than 12 Å in diameter. This complex was utilized as a cathode active material of a lithium ion battery, and it exhibited a capacity of ca. 60 mAh g−1 per the weight of the active material with a stable cycling performance up to 1000 cycles. This work shows that the coordination network formed by the trioxotriangulene-based ligand was effective in the improvement of cycle performance of the organic rechargeable battery.
