Abstract

We selected vitamin K//1 and hydrophobic viologen as electron carriers (ECS) and prepared ternary composite membranes composed of polymer/liquid crystal/EC. As reference membranes we used polymer/dibutyl phthalate/EC membranes which have no phase transition at the experimental temperature range. The redox-coupled electron transport for the vitamin K//1 mediated system is illustrated. We have found that the rate of electron transport across the polymer/CPB/EC membranes changes distinctly at the crystal-liquid crystal phase transition temperature of CPB, and that the rate of electron transport can be controlled by an on-off-type temperature switch.
