This paper describes the voltammetric behavior of the TEMPO (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl)-modified electrodes prepared by the electrochemical copolymerization of TEMPO precursor containing pyrrole side chain and thiophenes. The prepared TEMPO-modified electrode with 2,2’-bithiophene exhibits a symmetrical reversible redox wave at +0.7 V versus Ag/AgCl, which originates from the electron transfer between the pyrrole and 2,2’-bithiophene-copolymerized layer and the electrode. The electrochemical copolymerization using 2,2’-bithiophene showed a nonlinear behavior between the anodic peak current in the cyclic voltammogram of the copolymers-modified electrode and the fraction of TEMPO precursor containing pyrrole side chain in solution. The copolymers-modified electrode exhibits high electrocatalytic activity for the oxidation of alcohol.
