Abstract

Electrooxidative copolymerization of 3,4-ethylenedioxithiophene (EDOT) and benzene from a mixture of the monomers with concentrations of 5mM EDOT and 5M benzene produced copolymer films on an anode surface. The formation of copolymer films and characterization of their electrochemical properties was confirmed using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, ultravioletvisible absorption (UVvis) spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry (CV), and solid-state carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (13CNMR) spectroscopy measurements. Furthermore, the copolymerization ratio could be controlled by selection of the oxidation potential applied for copolymerization.
