Electropolymerisable bipyridine ruthenium(II) complexes. Synthesis and electrochemical characterisation of 4-(3-methoxystyryl)- and 4,4'-di(3-methoxystyryl)-2,2'-bipyridine ruthenium complexes

New Ru polypyridyl complexes with mono- or di-(3-methoxystyryl) substituted bipyridines were synthesized. The complexes were characterized by NMR, elemental anal., UV-visible absorption and emission spectroscopy, and cyclic voltammetry. Electroactive polymer films of these complexes were prepd. both by oxidative and reductive electropolymn. The polymers were characterized by UV-visible absorption spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry. Possible processes involved in the polymn. and the structure of the film are discussed.
