ABSTRACT:
The polymerization of thiophene was studied using BF3O(C2H5)2 as a supporting electrolyte at a platinum electrode to obtain conducting polythiophene. The result shows that the electrical conductivity is relatively higher in acetonitrile compare to that obtained 1,2-dichloroethane (DCE).Polymer films formed in DCE were black floppy and brittle but those obtained in acetonitrile were smooth and flexible. The cyclic voltammetric study was also made and the result shows that polymer films are stable.
