Abstract

A modified technique has been used to synthesize stretch oriented polyacetylene with fewer sp3 defects than in material prepared by other methods. The higher quality material exhibits substantially higher electrical conductivity. The data indicate a long electronic mean free path consistent with coherent metallic transport.
