Four omega-(3-pyrrolyl)esters were investigated by cyclic voltammetry, electron microscopy and conductivity measurements. The corresponding poly(pyrrole) derivatives exhibit enhanced conductivities compared to poly(3-acylpyrrole)s, and their electrochemical behavior resembles that of poly(3-alkylpyrrole)s rather than the poly(3-acylpyrrole) derivatives. Ester saponification occurring during electropolymerization was examined by gas chromatography.
