Abstract
A NOVEL CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF INTRINSICALLY CONDUCTIVE POLYMERS. THE CONDUCTIVE POLYMERS PPOLYDIACETYLENES WILL BE SYNTHESIZED BY THE SOLID-STATE POLYMERIZATION OF DIACETYLENES POLARIZABLE GROUPS, EITHER UPON THERMAL ANNEALING OR UPON EXPOSURE TO HIGH-ENERGY RADIATION. THE RESULTANT CONDUCTIVE POLYDIACETYLENES COULD BE CRYSTALLINE, INTRINSICALLY CONDUCTIVE, AND ENVIRONMENTALLY STABLE. CONDUCTIVE POLYDIACETYLENES WOULD BE SOLUTION-PROCESSIBLE INTO FILM. FOR CERTAIN APPLICATIONS, ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO PROCESS THE MONOMERS, FOLLOWED BY SOLID-STATE POLYMERIZATION. AS POLYDIACETYLENESWILL BE CRYSTALLINE AND HIGHLY PURE, THEY CAN BE USED FOR CERTAIN ELECTRONIC DEVICES.
