The electrochemistry of electrodeposited poly(vinylferrocene) (PVF) and poly(vinylferrocene acrylonitrile) (PVFAN) films on platinum electrodes was studied in acetonitrile solutions using perchlorate or p-toluenesulfonate as the counter ion by cyclic voltammetry. A model is proposed for the cyclic voltammetric behavior of polymeric films on electrode surfaces. The model incorporates non-equivalent redox sites with interconversion between such sites, electron-transfer kinetics at substrate/film interface and diffusion within the film. Parameters are obtained which yield a good fit to the experimental results. © 1980 Elsevier Sequoia S.A.
