Electrochemical copolymerizations of N1,N2-bis(thiophen-3-ylmethylene)benzene-1,2-diamine (TMBD), 4-methyl-N1,N2-bis (thiophen-3-ylmethylene)benzene-1,2-diamine (MTMBD) and 4-nitro-N1,N2-bis(thiophen-3-ylmethylene)benzene-1,2-diamine (NTMBD) with 3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene (EDOT) were carried out in CH3CN/LiClO4 (0.1M) solvent-electrolyte couple via potentiodynamic electrolysis. The resulting copolymers were characterized by cyclic voltammetry (CV), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The conductivity measurements of copolymers and PEDOT were carried out by the four-probe technique.
