Abstract:

Electrochem. polymn. of 2',5'-bis(1-methylpyrrol-2-yl)thiophene (NSN) was carried out by scanning electrochem. microscopy, using Ru(bpy)33+ as oxidant for the polymn. process and for the ultramicroelectrode surface-distance probe. While this led to deposition of flat layers of polymer on a PMMA substrate, use of the weak oxidant IrCl62- gave sets of thin needles. Micrographs of the various patterns are shown (with resolns. of ≈ 15 μm) and the mechanism of polymn. is discussed. [on SciFinder(R)]
