Example text

Thin films of transparent hydrated iridium oxide turn blue-black, whereas nickel oxide switches from pale green to brown-black, possibly due to the absorbance of Ni3‫ ם‬centers [26]. The systems are much less thoroughly investigated and a detailed mechanistic explanation is not known. However, proton extraction and anion insertion have been suggested. Metal-oxide-based electrochromic systems are especially interesting for the development of electrochromic windows because they mostly switch from a transparent state to a dark colored state [38,39].

Similar to polypyrroles, polythiophenes can be efficiently prepared by multiple-scan electropolymerization usually performed in Scheme 2 22 Bignozzi et al. Scheme 3 acetonitrile at potentials around ‫ ם‬1 V versus Ag/Ag‫( ם‬Scheme 3) [55]. Again, the polymerization is initiated by the formation of the monomer radical cation. The parent polymer is chemically significantly more stable than its pyrrole-based counterpart and easily processable [49]. Upon reduction of the doped polymer, a color change from blue (␭max ‫ ס‬730 nm) to red (␭max ‫ ס‬470 nm) is observed.

Metallophthalocyanines Phthalocyanines, which are porphyrin derivatives with highly delocalized ␲-systems, can form two types of metal complexes: one with the metal in the center 30 Scheme 12 Bignozzi et al. Heterosupramolecular Devices 31 Chart 2 of the macrocycle and the other one with two rings sandwiched around the metal (Chart 2) [80]. Due to their very unique and interesting optical features, as well as their chemical versatility and stability, these metallophthalocyanines are widely used industrial pigments and have also been thoroughly investigated in many other areas, including electrochromism [81].
