Abstract/Description: The cyclic voltammetry of ultrathin fihns of polyacetylene comprised of 2-3 nm micro fibrils and their aggregate 20 nm fibrils in methylene chloride, acetonitrile, propylene carbonate, and sulfo]ane shows many similarities, including a background oxidation of electrolyte that leads to serious coulombic inefficiency in rechargeable polyacetylene battery applications. Reversible charging in neutral aqueous solution is limited by the poor separation between the reversible and irreversible oxidations. Comparison of ultrathin and free-standing 100 ~m thick films showed they have the same maximum reversible doping level and thus energy density of 280 Wh/kg. Pristine, isomerized, deuterated, and hydrogenated [CH].,. show similar electrochemistry. Both n and p-type chemical doping caused isomerization of cis-[CHL to trans-[CH]~.
