Several conducting polymers have been synthesized through potentiostatic oxidative electro polymerisation (chronoamperometry) using a self-made potentiostat that was connected to a 3-electrode-setup. The monomers and the resulting polymers have been characterised using a commercially available potentiostat/galvanostat by cyclo voltammetry. Optical and morphological properties have been determined with spectral photometry (electro chromic behavior) and using the tapping mode of an atomic force microscope (AFM) respectively. Using the synthesized polymers electrochromic windows and organic bilayer solar cells have been created and investigated.
