Abstract

Macroscopically highly oriented polythiophene derivative films are synthesized by electrochemical polymerization in a smectic liquid crystal reaction medium. Control of orientation direction of conjugated main chains is performed by use of magnetic field which is applied parallel, obliquely, and perpendicularly to the substrate electrodes to align the liquid crystal reaction medium.
