Abstract

We demonstrate high-performance electrochromic assemblies that exhibit a practical combination of low-voltage operation and efficient electrochromic switching as well as long-term thermal and redox stability (1.12 × 105 cycles). Our molecular assemblies can be integrated into a solid-state configuration. Furthermore, we also show how the molecular structure of the chromophores correlates with the materials' growth and function. The coloration efficiencies of our assemblies are higher than those of inorganic materials and many conducting polymers, in addition to offering an alternative fabrication approach.
