Abstract

Facile control over the chemical polymerization of pyrrole from solutions of pyrrole-phosphomolybdic acid has allowed processibility of conducting poly(pyrrole). This approach has allowed thin conducting films of poly(pyrrole) to be deposited in a single step, and in contrast to electrochemical polymerization methods, is not limited to electrically conducting substrates. For example, 40-100 nm thick poly(pyrrole) films with conducivities in the range of 15 to 30 S cm-1 have been spin coated onto insulating glass substrates. Insight into the mechanism of polymerization has been obtained with cyclic voltammetry and UV-Vis spectroscopy.
