Abstract

Conducting polymeric films are prepared by the electro-oxidation of bithiophene on platinum. This simple one-step procedure produces films which are stable and employs nontoxic reagents. The films have conductivities in the range from 10/-1/ to 10/-3/ S/./cm/-1/ and are stable in conventional solvents at ambient conditions.
