Abstract

The influence of γ-radiation on the electric properties of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films of partially iodine-doped poly-(3-hexadecylthiophene) and stearic acid in interaction with selected environment-polluting gases has been studied. CO2, CO and NO2 increase the LB films conductivity and NO has a tendency to decrease the electric conductivity. The influence of γ-radiation was expressive onyl in the case of CO2, whereas NO2 brought about degradation of the conductive polymer.
