The synthesis and properties of highly stable neutral state green polymeric electrochromic, P1, which is based on 5,8-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2,3-di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)quinoxaline were highlighted. P1 exhibits three well-defined absorption bands with a narrow band gap (1.17 eV). The n- and p-doping (ambipolar) processes suggest that P1 is one of the most promising neutral state green polymers and it can be used in supercapacitors as either cathode or anode electrode material. Apart from the stability and the robustness of the polymer film, P1 shows multi-electrochromic behavior; gray-purple in the reduced form and highly transmissive blue color in the oxidized state.
