Triphenylamine was electrochemically polymerized in a mixture of toluene and acetonitrile with different electrolyte salts. The poly(triphenylamine) (PTPA) films are insoluble in polar solvents and show high stability and no degradation or loss in electrochemical properties when stored in a laboratory atmosphere. The PTPA films were characterized in situ by FTIR external reflection spectroscopy and by Raman spectroscopy.
