Novel conducting polymers
What is it about?
The ideal of polymers being conducting is exciting. It's not that the polymers are loaded with carbon that makes them conduct electricity, but that the polymer backbone itself enables electrons to move up and down the chains. This paper looks at some novel monomer building blocks designed to extend the electron flow in the resulting polymers.
Why is it important?
Polymers that conduct electricity offer exciting new application areas.
