Electro-polymerisation and characterisation of PEDOT in Lewis basic, neutral and acidic EMImCl-AlCl3 ionic liquid

research Article T.SchoetzaC.Ponce de LeonaA.BundbM.Ueda First published in Electrochimica Acta Volume 263, 10 February 2018, Pages 176-183 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.electacta.2018.01.033Get rights and content Abstract This work studied the electro-polymerisation of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and its electrochemical behavior in Lewis acidic, neutral and basic chloroaluminate ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride aluminum chloride (EMImCl-AlCl3) by cyclic voltammetry. It was found that the electro-polymerisation on vitreous carbon only occurs in Lewis …
