Synthetic polymers are generally regarded as electrically passive materials. However, in the recent past some electroactive polymers have been developed which play vital role in many new technologies. Electrically conductive, pyroelectric and piezoelectric polymers have been developed which can be used for sensors, optical computers, robotics and transducers.
