Evidence of the intercalative redox polymerization of ethylenedioxythiophene into V2O5; achievement of highly conducting poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)/V2O5 nanohybrids
Abstract:We have established a novel method of inserting poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) between the layers of V2O5 using a soft process of intercalation. The reaction takes place with the in situ polymerization of EDOT within the framework of crystalline V2O5 with different nominal EDOT/V2O5 ratios. The hybrids PEDOT/V2O5 exhibit a high electrical conductivity.
