Aggregation of P3HT as a Preferred Pathway for its Chemical Doping by F4-TCNQ
Chemistry and Biochemistry
The chemical doping reaction of P3HT by F4-TCNQ is studied by optical absorption spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and kelvin probe force microscopy. We demonstrate that the P3HT aggregation step is highly preferred before the actual charge transfer step takes place, emphasizing the impacts of morphology on chemical doping reaction of conjugated polymers at molecular level.
