Abstract [en]

Chronocoulometry and impedance spectroscopy were used to study the dynamics of charge transport in a series of methylated [Os(bpy)(2)(PVP)(x)Cl]Cl polymers (PVP = poly(4-vinylpyridine); bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine; 5 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 40) which were deposited as thin firms on glassy carbon electrodes. Apparent charge propagation diffusion coefficients D-app were of the order of 10(-8) cm(2) s(-1) and were approximately linearly dependent on the total concentration of redox sites but independent of the ratio of oxidized to reduced centres present in a particular coating. Attempts were made to explain these observations in terms of a recent theory of charge transport appropriate for systems in which the redox sites are permanently attached to the polymer chains. It was found that the concentration dependence and magnitude of D-app could be explained satisfactorily by a mean field model of charge propagation.
