Synthesis and Properties of Conducting Films by Plasma Polymerization of Tetramethyltin
Plasma polymerization of tetramethyltin has been investigated by using an inductively coupled tubular reactor. Plasma polymerized thin films of tetramethyltin, produced in the presence of oxygen, were reflective. A C/Sn ratio of less than 2 on the surface was necessary to achieve a conducting film. The transparent films consisted of an irregular network of C and Sn, but there was a threshold value of the C/Sn ratio below which the structure changed to beta -tin with possibly some carbon in the interstices. At sufficiently low C/Sn ratios, the film exhibited metallic behavior which was evidenced from the decrease of conductivity with increasing temperature.
