N-methyl-10,10-dimethylphenazasiline (SIN) was polymerized by electrochemical oxidation at +1.3 V in methylene chloride. Acid-base equilibria in solution between the heterocyclic nitrogen and the protons produced by the coupling reaction were detected. The oxidized polymer deposits on platinum or ITO electrodes to give strongly adherent and electrochromic coatings.
