A REVIEW OF THE ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF MONOMERIC AND POLYMERIC CHARGE-TRANSFER COMPLEXES,
DREXEL INST OF TECH PHILADELPHIA PA DEPT OF CHEMISTRY
Pagination or Media Count:
The electrical properties of a large number of monomeric charge-transfer CT complexes have been studied a range of 20 decades is observed in their conductivity. We have learned that there is a structurally related anisotropy of the conductivity, that powder measurements can be very misleading, and that the conductivity is high in CT complexes having a large radical-ion component in the ground state. Further progress requires learning how to achieve purity and measure carrier mobility in single crystals, and attempts made thus far in these directions are reviewed. A major problem in achieving high conductivity in polymers is to increase chain-chain interaction CT complexing is an effective way of accomplishing this and a number of donor polymer-monomeric acceptor systems have been examined. There has been very little work on carrier mobility. Author
