Abstract

original image

Am Puls der Zeit: Die Größe von Mikrokugeln aus leitfähigen Polymeren lässt sich steuern, indem man die Dauer des elektrischen Pulses in einem sonoelektrochemischen Polymerisationsprozess einstellt (siehe Bild). Aus Lösung auf einer Elektrode aufgetragene Filme der Mikrokugeln zeigen scharfe Redoxsignale in Abhängigkeit vom Potential.
