Abstract

The reaction of FeOCl with pyrrole and 2,2′-bithiophene proceeds with concomitant intercalation and oxidative polymerization of these heterocycles within the FeOCl van der Waals gap to yield (polypyrrole)0.34FeOCl and (polythiophene)0.28FeOCl, respectively. This process is accompanied by a simultaneous and structurally appropriate expansion in the FeOCl interlayer separation. Chemical, infrared spectroscopic, 57Fe Mo{combining double acute accent}ssbauer spectroscopic, and variable temperature charge transport data (four-probe conductivity, thermoelectric power) are in accord with this structural model.
