Electrochemistry of perylene imide and anhydride derivatives adsorbed on semiconductor TiO2 (NT) and insulator Al2O3 (NA) metal oxide films were presented. Adsorption rates on metal oxide surface are observed to be strongly depending on molecular structure. Monoanhydride-monoimide derivatives show two reversible reductions in solution and one reversible reduction in films. Color change from red to blue and violet is observed indicating the formation of monoanion and dianion radicals. Spectroelectrochemical measurements support this interpretation. The color reversal is quite stable in NA films in comparison with NT films.
