Novel long-chain dialkyl fluorene-9,9-dicarboxylates were synthesized by treating fluorene with lithium diisopropylamide followed by alkyl chloroformates. The fluorene derivatives were readily electro-oxidized to form electroactive films on the surface of a glassy carbon electrode. From the viewpoint of suitable potential window (from -2.5 to 1.5 V vs Ag/Ag+), cyclic voltammograms of the films indicated the electroactive properties of the fluorene derivatives that make them good candidates for electrochemical capacitor materials.
