Redox-active covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are promising materials for energy storage devices because of their high density of redox sites, permanent and con-trolled porosity, high surface areas, and tunable structures. However, the low electrochemical accessibility of their redox-active sites has limited COF-based devices either to thin films (<250 nm) grown on conductive substrates, or to thicker films (1 µm) when a conductive polymer is introduced into the COF pores.
