Scholarcy highlights

  • This report describes the electrochemical preparation and properties of polyaniline films prepared on a bare platinum electrode and on electrodes precoated with a thin film of inert polymer
  • In the more acidic solutions, the reaction has at dependence and depends on the movement of a front across the thickness of the film
  • The same response is observed for the oxidation and the reduction reaction
  • The resulting polymer blend is electroactive and the switching reaction is slower than for polyaniline formed on a bare platinum electrode
  • A brief description is given of electroactive polyaniline films which can be prepared by polymerization of aniline in a glow discharge
