Abstract

The formation of a self-assembled monolayer significantly promotes the adhesion of electrodeposited polypyrrole on stainless steel. The monolayer affects the nucleation and growth mechanism of polypyrrole as a result of its hydrophobic nature. This was confirmed by analyzing current-time transients of the initial stages of electropolymerization and was in agreement with ATM images.
