Abstract: Films of a dialkoxy poly(p-phenylenevinylene) (PPV) derivative bearing a bridged chain dialkoxy substituent on the aromatic rings (Bridged Dialkoxy PPV: BDA-PPV) were prepared via solvent casting and Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) techniques for applications in gas sensing devices. A description of the LB deposition of the sensing layers starting from an equimolar mixture of the polymer and arachidic acid is reported. Silicon substrates equipped with gold interdigitated electrodes have been used for both deposition pr…
