Abstract

It was found that 3-pyridylthiophen formed a conductive thin film by electropolymerization. The polymer, which had nitrogen atoms as donor atoms, coordinated to cobalt(II) ion. It was demonstrated that the metal-polymer complex could be used as a cathode catalyst for fuel cells. The potential of oxygen reduction was very high (Ep ∼ 0.4 V vs SCE) for the catalyst prepared by refluxing pyrrole, cobalt, and carbon particles which were modified by polymerization of 3-pyridylthiophen and pyrrole.
