Starting from Revised 18 January 2018 an aqueous solution of tetrachloroauric acid (acting both as metallic gold source and oxidizing agent Accepted 20 January 2018 to start the oxidative polymerization of thiophene), and a solution of thiophene in n-hexane, a biphasic Available online 6 February 2018 L/L system was originated. In the following, the interface acted as a meeting-point for the reactants, and the polymerization reaction took place, leading to self-assembled PT/Au ﬁlm between the
