Electrooxidative copolymerization of 3,4-ethylenedioxithiophene (EDOT) and benzene from a mixture of the monomers with concentrations of 5 mM EDOT and 5 M benzene produced copolymer films on an anode surface. The formation of copolymer films and characterization of their electrochemical properties was confirmed using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, ultraviolet–visible absorption (UV–vis) spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry (CV), and solid-state carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (13C NMR) spectroscopy measurements. Furthermore, the copolymerization ratio could be controlled by selection of the oxidation potential applied for copolymerization.
