Abstract

Here, we report on an in situ study of the spectroelectrochem. behavior of template prepd. poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) nanowires by UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy. A comparative anal. between spectra measured on a PEDOT thin film and on nanowires (diam.: 80 nm, 30 nm) has been made. It gives evidence for - enhanced bipolaronic band in the oxidized state, and - more efficient dedoping in the reduced state, for the 30-nm nanowires. This result, analyzed in terms of higher (de)doping level during the redox process for the smaller diam., demonstrates improved electroactivity and electrochromism, as required for sensors.
