Preparation and electrochemical behaviour of bilayer films consisting of iron(III) hexacyanoferrate, well known as Prussian Blue, and of poly [4,4′-bis(butylsulphanyl)-2,2′-bithiophene], on a platinum electrode, are reported. The electrochemical features of the Prussian Blue/conducting polymer bilayer system are examined in aqueous and acetonitrile solutions. Cyclic voltammetric studies show that, in acetonitrile solvent, the inner layer Prussian Blue is electroactive to some extent, though the electrochemical response of the system is mainly accounted for by poly[4,4′-bis(butylsulphanyl)-2,2′-bithiophene] outer layer. On the other hand, in aqueous solution Prussian Blue exhibits good electroactivity. Under specific experimental conditions, the individual redox behaviour of each constituent of the bilayer is evidenced in the two solvents separately, i.e., that of PB and that of poly[4,4′-bis(butylsulphanyl)-2,2′- bithiophene] in aqueous and in organic solvent, respectively. However, interesting reciprocal influences are evident in the current/potential curves recorded under conditions which are discussed. Copyright 2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
