Abstract

original image

Precursors to highly conducting polypyrrole (Ppy) are formed in the lipophilic channels of 1 subsequent to a spontaneous, strictly stoichiometric [N(Ppy)/Fe = 1/1] redox reaction. In view of the diameter of the channel (6.8 Å) the entrapped Ppy should be free of cross-linking (thus approximating a “molecular wire”).
