A major amount of research effort is now being devoted to the synthesis and properties of highly conducting derivatives of polyacetylene. While the electrical conductivity of pure cis or pure trans polyacetylene is probably lower than 10-9Ω-1,1 a variety of dopants are now known which increase the conductivity of polyacetylene at least nine orders of magnitude above this value. These include I2, IBr, IC1, AsF5, Na,1–4 AgBF4, AgClO4,5 and (FSO2O)2 6. For the AsF5 and (FSO2O-)2 dopants, conductivities of about 103 Ω-1 cm-1 or higher have been observed2,5.
