Electrode coatings consisting of polythiophene-based composites containing metal centres pp.1-74 $0.00
Authors:  (Chiara Zanardi, Fabio Terzi, Laura Pigani and Renato Seeber, Dipartimento di Chimica– Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia, Modena – Italy)
Abstract:
Polythiophene derivatives constitute nowadays the most extensively studied class of
conducting polymers, thanks to their mechanical and thermal stability, as well as to their
physical and chemical properties, such as electronic conductivity, electrochromism,
solvatochromism, thermochromism and luminescence. These materials have been
proposed for use in a wide range of applications, including chemical sensors, light
emitting diodes, thin film transistors, different electrocatalytic systems, batteries, smart
windows, and even artificial muscles.
Peculiar systems are realised by anchoring similar materials on substrates. In
particular, conductive substrates suitably coated by polythiophene derivatives constitute
particularly interesting electrode systems that can be exploited in numerous
electrochemical-electroanalytical applications. However, a notable part of the research
activity in these fields is today evolving toward the insertion of metals into the
polythiophenes matrix, in order to further improve the performances of the pure organic
material. The driving force to these studies lies in the possibility to combine the
properties of the organic and inorganic entities, taking advantage of their synergic
interaction. Basically, two different approaches, resulting in hybrids/composites of quite
different nature, have been followed: i) link of metal complexes to the polymeric
backbone; ii) inclusion of metal ions and complexes, of clusters, oxides or nanoparticles
into the polymer. In similar systems, the presence of the metal is supposed to deeply
affect the electronic and electrochemical properties of the resulting hybrid/composite
material.
