Anhydrous HF reacts with polyacetylene to produce a material with metallic conductivity. Infrared spectra of lightly doped samples show bands characteristic for a delocalized positive charge along the polymer chain. Upon heavier doping, conductivities of 1-10ohm-cm are measured. Addition of ammonia produces an ammonium ion on the chain, and destroys the conductivity of the material. A discussion of the doping mechanism and related reactions is given. Author
