Abstract: X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was employed for the in situ study of interactions between thermally evaporated Mg atoms and electroactive polyaniline (PANI) films of various intrinsic oxidation states. Quantitative changes in the N1s core-level spectra and the Mg2p core-level spectra, as well as the changes in surface chemical stoichiometry of these films throughout the Mg evaporation process were carefully monitored. Although the nitrogen sites appeared to be more attractive to the in-coming Mg atoms and the emeraldine base (EB) and nigraniline base (NA) films underwent an apparent decrease in intrinsic oxidation state ([double bond N-]/[-NH-] ratio) as a result of Mg evaporation, there is no direct interaction between the two species. On the other hand, the adsorbed oxygen from the bulk of the polymer film played a dominant role in the interfacial interactions between the polymer and the metal. Characterization of the delaminated indium-tin-oxide (ITO) and polymer surfaces from EB film and its camphorsulfonic acid-doped counterpart cast on ITO substrates had also been carried out to evaluate the interaction of PANI with the high work function metal.
