Paper Abstract

The electrochemically stimulated conformational relaxation model (ESCR) allows a good description of the chronoamperometric responses of polyaniline in acetonitrile solutions under relaxation control. Compaction, relaxation and diffusion controlled oxidation with penetration of counterions and increase of volume can be defined theoretically. Those three components include structural (macromolecular) aspects and electrochemical descriptions. The model is self-consistent: the same theoretical equation allows to simulate the influence of the different variables on the experimental results.
