Abstract:

Nanoparticles having reactive pyrrole residues were prepd. from poly(1-ethoxyethyl glycidyl ether)-block-poly(L,L-lactide) block copolymer. The nanoparticles were electropolymd. in aq. media through the oxidn. of the pyrrole residue and in the presence of pyrrole to form a nanocomposite thin film. The novel synthesis of these pyrrole-functionalized nanoparticles is described and the electrochem. deposition of the corresponding coating is characterized using electrochem., SEM and EDX.
