Abstract

Poly(3,4-ethylendioxythiophene) films were electropolymerized in aqueous medium without using any surfactant, on glassy carbon electrodes. UV/Vis and Raman spectroelectrochemical techniques were used to analyze the degradation of the polymer film occurring at different pH values. Spectroelectrochemistry has proven to be a very useful analytical tool for this purpose, thanks to its ability to provide information not only about the extent of degradation, but also about mechanistic aspects of t he process. From our results we extracted important information about the main factors that play a role in the degradation, inparticular about the influence of repetitive doping and de-doping cycles and of photo-induced processes, as a function of the characteristics of the solution, i.e. of pH
