Towards electrically conductive, self-healing materials.


A novel class of organometallic polymers comprising N-heterocyclic carbenes and transition metals was shown to have potential as an electrically conductive, self-healing material. These polymers were found to exhibit conductivities of the order of 10(-3) S cm-1 and showed structurally dynamic characteristics in the solid-state. Thin films of these materials… (More)
