Abstract: The polymers of the aromatic nitrogen compounds N-methyl-pyrrole (P-N-Me-PPY), carbazole (PCarb), and aniline (PANI) have been investigated with electrooptical and surface analytical methods. The in-situ reflection spectra indicate the formation of polarons or bipolarons during electrochemical oxidation, depending on polymer type. The absorption bands can be attributed to changes in the electronic structure with regard to the applied potential. Photocurrent spectra of P-N-Me-PPY and PCarb show a p-type semico…
