We describe the synthesis of conjugated pyrrole-based monomers and their derived polymers on different conducting surfaces for biosensing applications, containing aryl-ketone 1-[4-(1H- pyrrol-1-yl)phenyl]ethan-1-one, (compound 1), and iodo 1-(4-iodophenyl)-1H- pyrrole (compound 2) functional groups, along with their electrochemical, morphological properties. Monomer 2 shows lack of electropolymerisation, while monomer 1 is electropolymerizable monomer. SEM-EDX, and Diffuse-reflectance FT-IR (DRFT-IR) were employed for surface characterisation of the deposited polymeric film on FTO glass.
