Conducting polymer bilayers with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) and polypyrrole (PPy), each containing dodecyl benzenesulfonate (DBS) as immobile dopant species, were synthesized galvanostatically. The electrochemical behaviour of the bilayers was investigated using cyclic voltammetry, optical absorption spectroscopy and electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) techniques. Two important conclusions of relevance for actuator performance were reached: It is possible to make a bilayer film that does not delaminate – the two polymers are compatible; and both polymers are active in the redox process as ions are able to move through the PEDOT layer and penetrate into PPy.
