Epub 2016 Dec 2.Metal coordination between polyphenols and metal cations like Fe3+ allows to produce conformal homogeneous and robust coatings on a vast variety of materials. The deposition kinetics and the stability of the obtained films are however only poorly investigated. In the present article it is shown that rough, granular but pinhole free coatings up to 50nm in thickness can be obtained in a one pot manner using pyrocatechol (Pyr)/Fe3+ mixtures at different stoichiometries (with Fe3+/Pyr ratios equal to 0.
