Structural Features of Pure and Doped Polyacetylene: (CH)x

  • J. P. Pouget
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 63)


The purpose of this paper, which follows a recent review [1], is to point out some structural features,observed in polyacetylene, which might be relevant to understand the physical properties of the largest class of conducting polymers. Although most of the results have been obtained until now with (CH)x prepared by the method of SHIRAKAWA, the recent synthesis, by the DURHAM route, of highly oriented samples, will certainly allow in the near future more improved structural studies.
