Abstract
VERY RECENT UNRELATED WORK AT GUMBS HAS YIELDED A BREAKTHROUGH IN CONDUCTING POLYMER TECHNOLOGY, WITH SOLUBLE,PROCESSIBLE POLYMERS WITH 6% OR HIGHER W/W SOLUBILITY IN ORGANIC SOLVENTS, AND HOMOGENEOUS, REPRODUCIBLE THIN FILMS WITH CONDUCTIVITIES AS HIGH AS 1 S/CM; THE PRESENT WORK WILLSEEK TO FURTHER ENHANCE CONDUCTIVITIES OF THESE POLYMERS, AND ALSO TO SYNTHESIZE NEW POLYMERS BASED ON TRENDS IDENTIFIED IN THE PRIOR WORK; THESE POLYMERS WILL HAVE ANTICIPATED SUPERIOR CONDUCTIVITY, SOLUBILITY AND PROCESSIBILITY. THE WORK WILL ALSO ATTEMPT TO IMPROVE SOLUBILIZING, PROCESSING AND COATING TECHNIQUES. THE DESIGNOF THE TARGETED NEW POLYMERS INCLUDES CONSIDERATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY BY EXCLUSION OF REACTIVE SUBSTITUENTS. BESIDES THE ADVANTAGES OF WEIGHT, PROCESSIBILITY, ONE-COMPONENT NATURE AND STABILITY, THE POLYMERS WILL ALSO HAVE ANTICIPATED SUPERIOR CONDUCTIVITY TOCURRENTLY AVAILABLE COMPOSITES.
