Abstract

The alternating layer-by-layer deposition of oppositely charged polyelectrolytes at solid substrates is an attractive technique for preparation of nanostructured surface coatings of controlled thickness. This paper reports the results of covalently binding of cobalt (II) and copper (II) ions within polyelectrolyte multilayers (PEMs). We have used polycation as polyethyleneimine (BPEI) and polyanion as poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) and the electrostatic layer-by-layer assembly technique to make uniform thin film coating on solid template with controllable thickness. Thermodynamic characteristics as stability constant, free Gibbs energy, enthalpy and entropy of complex forming processes of these polyelectrolytes with Co(II) and Cu(II) cations in solution were calculated by modified method of Bjerrum. The correlation between log β values and some of the fundamental properties of the metal ions are discussed. It was found that the ratio of Me:L in water solvent is 1:4 in the investigating systems Cu 2+:BPEI and Co 2+:BPEI and in the systems Co 2+:PAA and Co 2++:PAA - 1:2. PEMs were deposited onto silicon wafers, glass slides, or coated on silica oxide particles. Dipping solutions of different pH were used in order to find the optimum conditions for absorbing maximum amount of metal cations. These PEMs films are found to offer high capacity and selectivity for copper over cobalt in both acidic and alkaline media. Preliminary investigation have shown that metal containing PEMs has catalytic activity for oxidation of toluene with molecular in mild condition.
