Abstract
Electronically conducting polymers are a special category of organic macromolecules that have the special property of becoming electrically conductive under appropriate conditions. Since their discovery thirty years ago, there has been interest in applying these materials in many areas, including molecular electronics, anti-corrosive coatings, and electromagnetic shielding. However, very few technologies have emerged from beyond the laboratory proof-of-concept stage, largely due to the difficulty in processing these polymers into useful forms. This paper describes the method of controlled growth polymerization to produce conducting polymers using conventional processing methods such as spin coating, and without restriction on the chemical nature of the polymer.
