Abstract

Surface-confined monomer-containing monolayers based on pyrroles on an electrode offer the possibility for a high level of control over the electrochemical polymerization of the monomers within the monolayer. This is of importance for the development of molecular-scale electronic devices. The materials and the technique of surface-confined polymerization are presented.
