Abstract : The main objective of our research program is to develop new electrode materials for oxygen reduction based on polymeric aminophthalocyanines, poly-MTAPc's. Reaching this objective depends on successful outcomes in the following endeavors: optimization of monomer syntheses, of polymer formation, and of transition metal exchange in the polymer; characterization of O2 reduction at poly-MTAPC-modified electrodes, in terms of both mechanism and kinetics; description, at a molecular level, of the polymer film based on electroanalytical and spectroscopic studies.
