Upon changing the redox level of the absorbed species, both oxidative and reductive interfacial electron-transfer processes can be fast. This is illustrated in Fig. 12b for a molecular species (B) with a redox potential slightly negative with respect to the flat-band potential of the semiconductor. The arguments are relevant for the design of electrochromic molecular species which may undergo fast electron transfer on the semiconductor films with accompanying chromatic changes. Several strategies for the attachment of redox components onto a host surface are, in principle, feasible, among them chemisorption, electrostatic association, hydrogen-bonding, physisorption, and physical entrapment [32].

Among them are a high contrast ratio (sharp colors), high coloration efficiency (adsorbance change/charge injected per unit area), long cycle life, low response time, and good write–erase efficiency (percentage of originally formed coloration that may be subsequently electrobleached) [32]. For their characterization, electrochromic compounds are initially tested at a single working electrode under potentiostatic control using a three-electrode arrangement. Traditional characterization techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, coulometry, chronoamperometry, all with in situ spectroscopic measurements, are applied to monitor important properties [27].

36 Bignozzi et al. pound is so strongly coupled that the observed properties are entirely new and unique for the whole new system, whereas contributions from the individual units are absent. Complexes belonging to Class II display a mixture of new properties due to communication between the metals, whereas other properties of the individual units are retained. The effect of the changes in the electronic coupling on the energy surface of the ground state can be illustrated in the same potential energy versus nuclear configuration diagram.
