Layer-by-layer deposition of polythiophene...

Layer-by-layer deposition of polythiophene has successfully been carried out using only polyanion and polycation dilute solutions of polythiophene. The synthesis and characterization of these assemblies, as well as their optical properties are described. The conductivities of the regioregular polythiophenes reported are much higher than for regio-random polythiophene multilayer systems (R.D. McCullough et al., June 18, Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 900-904).
