Abstract

The problem related to the stability and reproducibility of the Electro-synthesis of poly(3-nhexylthiophene) has received less attention. We present her the first result on studies of electrochemical polymerisation of this conducting polymer. We report results concerning the effect off the following parameters (solvent, nature and concentration of electrolyte, temperature, monomer concentration and ageing of the solution).

Keywords: Conducting polymers; Electro-synthesis; Poly(3-nalkylthiophene); Electrochemical polymerisation.
