Abstract

A templating method is used to create conductive polymers that have a helical superstructure. The driving force is an electrostatic interaction between the negative charge in a synthetic lipid and the cationic charge generated in the polymers during oxidative electrochemical polymerization of ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and a pyrrole (see picture; CV = cyclic voltammetry).
