Vapor phase synthesis of conducting polymer nanocomposites incorporating 2D nanoparticles

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The one step fabrication of nanocomposite films of conducting

    polymers with 2D nanoparticles is investigated in this study. Specifically, the

    inclusion of nanomaterials (single layer graphene, single layer molybdenum

    disulfide) within PEDOT is achieved using the vapor phase polymerization

    (VPP) technique. This facile process allows for the formation of thin films of

    the order of less than 200 nm, which display a wide range of enhanced

    properties (mechanical, optical, and electrochemical). Herein, in a typical

    example with added graphene (<0.003% w/w), the in-plane modulus of the

    film is increased to 145 GPa (ca. 65% increase above PEDOT−Tos) without

    any decrease in light transmission or lowering of conductivity. Furthermore,

    the nanocomposite outperforms both the PEDOT−Tos film and a Pt substrate

    in the reduction of oxygen when acting as an air-electrode.
