Abstract:

Research is reported on the use of thermodynamically reversible dopant solubilities and electro-solubilities, in conducting polymers, for the study of ionization mechanisms, band structures, and carrier species. Both theory and experiment is accomplished. Much work is focused on iodine in polythiophene and protons in emeralsine. Studies of conducting polymer film as gas selective as gas selective membranes are performed The results are dramatic conducting polymers appear to be exceptionally good gas selective membranes.
