Abstract:

RECENT UNRELATED WORK AT THE COMPANY HAS YIELDED A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH IN CONDUCTING-POLYMER TECHNOLOGY, WITH SOLUBLE,PROCESSIBLE POLYMERS WITH HIGH SOLUBILITY IN ORGANIC SOLVENTS, AND HOMOGENEOUS, REPRODUCIBLE THIN FILMS WITH CONDUCTIVITIES AS HIGH AS 1,000 S/CM. THE PRESENT WORK SEEKS TO FURTHER ENHANCE CONDUCTIVITIES OF THESE POLYMERS, BASED ON TRENDS IDENTIFIED IN THE PRIOR WORK, AND ALSO TO PREPARE AND EVALUATE PAINTS BY DISPERSING SOLUTIONS OF THESEELASTOMERIC COPOLYMERS WITH CONDUCTIVE CARBON BLACK. THESE COPOLYMERS WILL HAVE ANTICIPATED SUPERIOR CONDUCTIVITY, SOLUBILITY, AND PROCESSIBILITY. THE WORK WILL ALSO ATTEMPT TO IMPROVE SOLUBILIZING, PROCESSING, AND COATING TECHNIQUES. THE DESIGN OF THE TARGETED NEW COPOLYMERS INCLUDES CONSIDERATION OF IMPROVED ELASTOMERICITY FOR BETTERCRYOGENIC APPLICATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY VIA EXCLUSION OF REACTIVE SUBSTITUENTS. BESIDES THE ADVANTAGES OF WEIGHT, PROCESSIBILITY, ONE-COMPONENT NATURE, AND STABILITY, THE PROPOSED PAINTS WILL BE MORE CONDUCTIVE THAN CURRENTLY AVAILABLE PAINTS BASED ON NON-CONDUCTIVE BINDERS.
