Publisher Summary The insaturation in the conducting polymers backbone is localized, and, as a consequence, the electrons are not free to move along the chain. To make these polymers electrically conductive, it is necessary to introduce mobile charge carriers. This is typically done by oxidation or reduction reactions, called “doping.” The large spectrum of applications of conductive polymers using the variation of its optical properties upon doping or oxidation-reduction reactions is discussed… CONTINUE READING
