Abstract

The electrochemical behavior and electron spin resonance response of thin films of tetracyanoquinodimethane polyester in contact with aqueous buffers have been studied. The results indicate that the coupling of electron- and proton-transfer steps in the classical 3 multiplied by 3 square scheme, which describes quinone electrochemistry, can significantly influence the charge-transport rate through the film, limiting the electroactivity to a fraction of the available electron-transfer sites and decreasing the effective diffusion coefficient for charge transport through the polymer film by 100-fold for specific conditions.
