Effect of anchoring groups on electrochemical self-assembly of ZnO/xanthene dye hybrid thin films.


Three xanthene dyes with different anchoring groups, eosin Y (EY), dicarboxy-eosin Y (CEY) and sulfonated eosin Y (SEY) were employed to electrodeposit ZnO/dye hybrid thin films to study the effect of anchoring groups on the electrochemical self-assembly (ESA) of hybrid thin films. The adsorption stabilities of the dyes in oxidized form were in the order… (More)
