Abstract

A post-polymerization effect for poly(2,5-dimethoxyaniline), PDMA, has been observed in which PDMA inthe form of needles grows on the porous granular surface of the polymer previously formed by electrosynthesis (see Figure). Details of voltammetry experiments are given and an explanation for the post-polymerization effect proposed.
