Abstract

Slurry electrochemical doping of the cofacially-joined phthalocyanine polymer [Si(Pc)O]n in Et4N+tosylate- /acetonitrile yields doped polymers of stoichiometry {[Si(Pc)O](tosylate)y}n, where y = 0.00 to 0.67. Charge transport data show a continous evolution of properties, from those of an insulator to those (at y {greater-than or approximate} 0.20) of a molecular metal.
