Introduction to Electronic Polymer
Electronic polymers are organic polymers that conduct electricity. These polymers have metallic conductivity or can be semiconductors. The major benefit of these polymers is their processability, mainly by dispersion. Electronic polymers are generally not thermoplastics, i.e., they are not thermoformable but alike insulating polymers, they are organic materials. These include advantage of offering high electrical conductivity. The electrical properties can be finely modified using the methods of organic synthesis and by advanced dispersion techniques.
The properties of electronic polymers are such that they possess electronic and optical attributes of metals coupled with those of inorganic semiconductors. Moreover, they also have the flexible mechanics of polymers. Additionally, electronic polymers are essentially significant category of polymers owing to the inclusion of doped polymers and intrinsic semiconducting conjugated polymers in electro-chemical devices.
