Electrochemical fabrication of conducting polymer onto selected positions
Conducting polymers such as polypyrrole and poly (3-hexylthiophene) have received particular interests because of easy preparation and relatively good stability. These polymers can be electrochemically synthesized in the form of thin film onto a working electrode. However, once the polymer film start to grow, all electrode surface contacted with deposition solution is to plated. The object of this research was to perform the selective electrodeposition of conducting polymers on the working electrode. This type of polymerization could be completed by adapting confined area electrolysis. Microstructures of conducting polymers were fabricated by using this method. The similar microstructures fabricated by electrochemical carving method.
