Electrochemical copolymerization of o-toluidine (OT) with m-bromoaniline (MBA) was carried out in 1M HCl by cyclic voltammetry. Polymeric films were deposited by employing different conditions such as cycle number and feed ratio of comonomers. Electrochemical homopolymerization of OT and MBA was also done independently. A growth equation for copolymer deposition relating the parameters of operation and charge associated for film deposition was obtained. The copolymer was also prepared using potassium peroxodisulfate as an oxidizing agent. The chemically and electrochemically synthesized copolymer was characterized through FT-IR and UV-visible spectroscopic studies.
