Once thought to be a likely replacement for copper wires, electronic conductive polymers are beginning to find applications in a variety of electronic devices. Applications under development include plastic displays, transistors, photodiodes, plastic fuel cells, light-emitting printable plastic inks, and chemical and biological sensors. This book examines the most recent developments in electronic conductive polymers and includes work from many of the leaders in the
field. A comprehensive volume, it covers properties, applications, synthesis, processing and device fabrication for semiconducting polymers. It includes a number of chapters on ionic and carbon-filled conductive polymers with important industrial uses. It concludes with a look at future developments
and suggestions for future research.
