Polymer Composite Nanomembranes with Asymmetry of Conductivity


Article Preview

This paper describes a structure and electrotransport properties of poly(ethylene terephthalate) track membrane (PET TM) modified by plasma of thiophene. It is shown that the deposition of the polymer on the track membrane surface by plasma polymerization of thiophene in case of forming a semipermeable layer results in creation of composite nanomembrane having in electrolyte solutions of asymmetry of conductivity - a rectification effect. It is caused by presence in the membrane of two layers with various functional groups, and also by changing of the pore geometry. Such type membranes can be used for creation of chemical and biochemical sensors.
