Impedance and Morphology of Hydroxy- and Chloro-Functionalized Poly(3,4-propylenedioxythiophene) Nanostructures
The new 3,4-propylenedioxythiophenes (ProDOT) bearing hydroxy- or chloro-functionalized side chains of varying length and polarity were synthesized and electropolymerized on single carbon fiber microelectrode (SCFME) using cyclo-voltammetry. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) revealed highest capacitance values for the hydroxy-functionalized Poly 5 carrying a side chain of medium length. The EIS data were fitted with an equivalent electrical circuit giving a good correlation. AFM analysis of the topography showed higher roughness values for Poly 5 than for the two other polymers bearing longer side chains. Due to their reactive end groups the polymers should be useful for post-polymerization functionalization of the electrode surface.
