Abstract : One of the most interesting properties of electronically conductive polymers is their ability to be reversibly switched between electronically insulating and electronically conductive states. A tremendous amount of research effort has been directed, during the last ten years, toward exploring the rates and mechanisms of these switching reactions. Because these reactions are electrochemical, in nature, electrochemical methods have been used in these investigations. In this review article we review both electrochemical and chemical methods for studying insulator/conductor switching processes in electronically conductive polymers. (jes)
