Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Polymer films of poly(3,4-ethylenedithiothiophene) obtained by electrochemical oxidative polymerization of the corresponding monomer have been investigated. p-Doping process of the polymer was characterized by in situ EPR spectroelectrochemisty. Compared to its close relative - PEDOT, the polymer features two distinct voltammetric peaks. The results of our studies indicate that both represent faradaic processes and that each manifests generation of charge carriers in the polymer.
