    • Abstract

       

      Mixed ionic and electronic conduction in charge transfer materials based on aromatic diamine electron donors (benzidine,o-tolidine (3,3′-dimethyl benzidine) andN,N′-diphenylbenzidine) with iodine in different mole ratios has been reported. The current-voltage and capacitance-voltage curves as a function of time and temperature have been obtained to determine the role of ionic conduction in electronic conductors based on charge transfer complexes. The compositional dependence of ionic transport numbers, diffusion parameters, ionic(σi) and electronic(σe) conductivities and thermal activation energies has been studied. Temperature and frequency dependence of AC impedance and related parameters have been studied to learn about the electrical conduction behaviour in these non-stoichiometric charge transfer materials. An electrochemical mechanism has been proposed to account for the ionic conduction in some of these complexes.
