Preparation and characterization of poly(N-methylpyrrole)/MoO3 hybrid composites
Rights accessOpen Access
Poly(N-methylpyrrole)/molybdenum trioxide composites have been prepared by in situ anodic polymerization using a 75:25 acetonitrile:water monomer solution, exfoliated molybdenum trioxide particles, and supporting electrolyte as reaction medium. The incorporation of molybdenum trioxide increases the ability of poly(N-methylpyrrole) to exchange charge reversibly (i.e., the electroactivity) by 47%. This has been attributed to the structural changes induced by the molybdenum trioxide, which transforms the uniform and compact surface morphology of poly(N-methylpyrrole) into a more open structure with distinctive topographic features at different levels. These trends facilitate the access and escape of dopant ions during oxidation and reduction processes, respectively, with respect to poly(N-methylpyrrole).
