Abstract

There are now a number of different polymers which undergo dramatic conductivity increases on exposure to electron donors or acceptors. The discussion here will center on a comparison of the electrical and optical properties of the different systems, with special emphasis on polyphenylenes and polyphenylenesulfides. The very promising results provided by the Valence Effective Hamiltonian (VEH) technique for the valence band electronic structures of a wide range of undoped polymers will provide the framework for a comparison of the various conducting polymer systems.
