Title: SiO{sub 2} sol-gel composite films containing redox-active, polypyridyl-ruthenium polymers

Abstract

SiO{sub 2}-based sol-gels have been utilized extensively as media for incorporating redox-active, luminescent, or catalytically active molecules. The mild preparative conditions allow for the incorporation of organic and inorganic dyes, and their glasslike optical properties make sol-gel composites attractive media for various optical applications. The high porosities and large surface areas of these materials have led to applications in chemical sensing and catalysis. The authors report here an approach which is based on the incorporation of Ru{sup II}-bpy derivatized polystyrene polymers and results in stable film structures on optically transparent ITO electrodes.
