Conductive Polymers: An Opportunity for New Monomers and Polymers

  • Harry W. Gibson
Part of the Polymer Science and Technology book series (POLS, volume 25)

Abstract

Electrically conductive polymers have been the subject of sporadic interest to chemists and physicists over the past twenty-five years.1,2 This interest arises from the intriguing prospect of being able to combine in a single material the electrical properties of a metal (high conductivity, greater than 1 s/cm) or semiconductor (moderate conductivity, 10−7 to 1 s/cm) with those of a polymer (mechanical strength, flexibility, lighter weight, low preparation and fabrication costs, etc.). Part of the reason for the sporadic nature of the interest and progress in this field until recently was the fact that the interdisciplinary component necessary in such endeavours was not in place. A second cause was the physical nature of the polymers.
