In situ spectroelectrochemistry of poly(N,N'-ethylenebis(salicylideneiminato)Cu(II)).


In situ ESR, UV-visible, and FT-IR-ATR spectroelectrochemistry were used to study the charge transfer for electrochemically synthesized poly(N,N'-ethylenebis(salicylideneiminato)Cu(II)), which represents a macromolecular metal chelate with ESR-active central metal ions. Structural evidence for different charged states in electroactive poly(Cu(II)-salen) was obtained from ESR, UV-visible, and FT-IR spectra under reversible redox cycling. The changes in a characteristic broad ESR line without hyperfine splitting originating from Cu(II) as well as in the corresponding UV-visible and infrared spectra are discussed in order to describe an electron transfer to the redox-active sites within the polymer chains in detail.
