n-Alkanoic Acid Monolayers on 316L Stainless Steel Promote the Adhesion of Electropolymerized Polypyrrole Films.

Date Published:



The formation of a self-assembled monolayer significantly promotes the adhesion of electrodeposited polypyrrole on stainless steel. The monolayer affects the nucleation and growth mechanism of polypyrrole of its hydrophobic nature. This was confirmed by analyzing current-time transients of the initial stages of electropolymn. and was in agreement with AFM images. [on SciFinder(R)]
