Electronic Structure of the Insulating Forms of Polyaniline
We present the results of preliminary band-structure calculations on two insulating forms of polyaniline. These are the so-called form 1A (where A stands for amine and 1 denotes a reduced species): [-phenyl-NH-]x, and the so-called form 2A (where 2 denotes an oxidized species):[-phenyl-N=quinoid=N-]x Although known for a long time, polyaniline has been recently the focus of renewed interest because of its potential as a conducting polymer [1–3]. The ways of obtaining the different polyaniline forms are sketched below:
