Abstract : Research on solid state electrochemistry of lanthanide diphthalocyanine electrochromic films in the period 1977-1987 is summarized. Highlights include characterization of the ion-insertion processes with a novel solid-state moving-boundary technique, study of ambient-atmosphere effects on the anodic reactions, and investigation of solid polymer electrolytes for use in contact with diphthalocyanine electrode films. Future applications of these electrochromic systems in multicolor flat-panel information displays for military purposes are anticipated. Keywords: Diphthalocyanines; Ion transport; Electronic conduction; Electrochromism; Solid polymer electrolytes.
