    The electrochemical redox reactions of organic polymers bearing robust unpaired electrons were investigated to determine the applicability of these polymers to rechargeable batteries. Such an “organic radical battery” would be environmentally friendly and have high-power characteristics. This highlight review describes the performance of a battery using a nitroxyl radical polymer as the cathode active material. The electron-transfer mechanism and recent developments that should lead to the practical application of the organic radical battery are also described.
