Paper Abstract

A novel approach to tailor the electrochromic properties of polythiophenes utilizing a silyl bridge to form discrete electrochromes is described. The monomer bis[2-(5,2'- dithienyl)]dimethyl silane was chemically synthesized and electrochemically polymerized. Electrochromic properties of devices incorporating this polymer as active material were studied and analyzed following CIE L*a*b* formalism. This polymer exhibits a yellow to green electrochromism from neutral to oxidized state.
