Conductive Polymers

  • Raymond B. Seymour


Since many organic polymers are used as thermal and electrical insulators, their use as electrical conductors may be considered as an unusual and unique application. However, polymers with conjugated double bonds do have low ionization potential and high electron affinity and can be readily oxidized or reduced ,in the presence of charge transfer agents ,which are called acceptor or donor dopants.
