The electrochemical oxidation of 3-(4-fluorophenyl) thiophene (FPT) at a platinum electrode in pure 1-ethyl-2,3-dimethylimidazolium bis ((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl) amide, EDMITFSI, and 1,3-diethyl-5-methylimidazolium bis ((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl) amide, DEMITFSI, yielded an electroactive polymer. This polymer (PFPT) was similar to that prepared from common nonaqueous media such as tetraethylammonium tetrafluoroborate/acetonitrile, but it was characterized by slower ion insertion kinetics.
