Abstract

(Terthiophene)4 - poly(amidoamine) - C60 pentad 8a and (terthiophene)2 - poly(amidoamine) - C60 triad 8b have been synthesized with the aim of developing novel precursors for photoinduced polymerization. The electrochemical oxidation of pentad 8a by repetitive cyclic voltammogram scans gave a polymeric 8a film on a FTO electrode, which showed electrochemical activity and photoelectric response. When a monomer film of 8 on FTO was irradiated with visible light, the photoinduced polymerization of the terthiophene moiety was observed. The photoanodic features of an electropolymerized film of 8a on a FTO (poly-8aelectro/FTO) and 8a/FTO were investigated regarding photocurrent response to light irradiation. The photocurrent of a photopolymerized 8a film on a FTO (poly-8aphoto/FTO) electrode formed by photoreaction of 8a/FTO, is approximately 6 times greater than that of the 8a/FTO electrode.
