Sreeram Vaddiraju, Kris Seneca and Karen K. Gleason Novel Strategies for the Deposition of COOH Functionalized Conducting Copolymer Films and the Assembly of Inorganic Nanoparticles on Conducting Polymer Platforms Advanced Functional Materials 18
Oxidative chemical vapor deposition (oCVD) for obtaining conducting copolymer films of pyrrole and thiophene-3-acetic acid (TAA) is presented (see figure). A strategy for assembling inorganic metal nanoparticles on top of these films using linker molecules is also presented. The effect of silver nanoparticle attachment on the conductivity is discussed.
