Abstract

Abstract A study of the electroactivity decay of polythiophene (PT) film electrodes is reported. It has been found that PT film loses its electroactivity when the applied potential is scanned between 0 – 2.2 V ( versus SCE) in the monomer-free electrolyte solution. Based on the analyses of the structures and the properties of such degraded PT films, a possible passivation process of PT film has been proposed.
