Electrochemical measurements have been employed to study the formation process of the charge-transfer complexes Cu+TCNQ−,a switching and memory material, in a saturated TCNQ/CH3CN solution. These studies show that the Cu/Cu+TCNQ−(s), TCNQo(CH3CN) system is an active-passive system corroding under diffusion control. A possible mechanism of localized corrosion-crystallization is proposed for the formation of a Cu+TCNQ− film in an acetonitrile solution
