What is it about?
Conducting polymers are plastics that behave similarly to metals, such as in their ability to conduct electricity. This paper describes the many application areas of these materials; these include sensors, bioimplants, corrosion protection coatings and energy storage systems.
Why is it important?
There is a constant search for new materials. Whilst a particular material may have many desirable properties, its application may be limited due to certain characteristics. Conducting polymers bridge the gap between plastics and metals
