Abstract: Pyrrole was grafted on poly[(methyl methacrylate)-co-(2-(N-pyrrolyl) ethyl methacrylate)] (PMMA-co-PEMA) using constant potential electrolyses. The thermal stability of PMMA-co-PEMA was improved as a result of electrochemical grafting with pyrrole. The electrochemical behavior of the films was studied by cyclic voltammetry. Pyrrole was found to be electroactive on PMMA-co-PEMA electrodes.
