Electrochemical Polymerization of N-(9-Fluorenylmethoxycarbony)-Glycine and Characterization of its Polymers
Poly(N-(9-fluorenylmethoxycarbony)-glycine) (PFG) film was first synthesized on platinum wire by direct anodic oxidation of N-(9-fluorenylmethoxycarbony)-glycine (FG) in boron trifluoride diethyl etherate (BFEE). The oxidation potential of FG in BFEE was only 0.4 V vs. Pt. Therefore, BFEE can be an ideal supporting electrolyte for polymerization of FG. Scanning electron microscopy showed the morphology of PFG. The structure of PFG film was studied by FT-IR spectroscopy.
