Abstract

Polyacetylene, (CH)x is the simplest organic polymer.Through chemical doping, the electrical conductivity of films of (CH)x can be varied over twelve orders of magnitude with properties ranging from insulator (σ < 10−10 ohm-1 cm-1 ) to semiconductor to metal (σ > 103 ohm−1 cm−1).Both donors and acceptors can be used with these flexible, free-standing polycrystalline polymer films (thickness 10−5 cm to 0. 5 cm) to yield n-type or p-type material.In this review we summarize some of the more important chemical and physical properties of (CH)x and its doped derivatives.

    The successful doping and resulting control of electrical properties over a wide range, including high conductivity (in the metallic range) at heavy doping levels have now been reproduced in many laboratories throughout the world.
