Abstract:

Research carried out on this grant includes studies of water soluble polyelectrolytepolypyrrole composites, conducting polymerdopant ion interactions, symmetrically and asymmetrically substituted polydi-2- heterocycle-2,5-disubstitutedphenylenes, poly5-decylisothianaphthene, polyrrole containing luminescent ions, the use of cyclic voltammetry coupled with UV-vis and Raman spectroscopy, the preparation of polypyrrole films containing nm-sized Platinum particles, the neutral-polaron-bipolaron sequence of oxidation states of polypyrrole in the presence of Oxygen, melt spun fibers of blends of poly3-dicylthiophene with polyethylene and the development of a new modification of the Extended Huckel band structure methodology which, when combined with geometries calculated by the PRDDO method, produces very accurate calculated band gaps.
