Abstract

Poly(N-methylisoindole) is prepared by chemical and electrochemical
methods and its properties are reported: the polymer shows interesting
optical, electrochromic and conducting behaviour. It shows a colour
change (golden to near colourless) on oxidation associated with
absorption in the near infrared (lambda(max) about 1400 nm) in the
doped polymer and an intrinsic bandgap of about 2 eV.
