Abstract The synthesis of a novel terthiophene monomer functionalized with pentadienoic acid, 5-(2′:2″, 5″:2″′-terthiophene)-3″-yl)] (2E, 4E)penta-2,4-dienoic acid (TPDA), and its electropolymerization into a conducting polymer is described. The polymer electrochemical stability in aqueous solution was examined by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). CV revealed PTPDA film displayed good redox activity in an organic solvent (CH 2 Cl 2 ) and poor… CONTINUE READING
