  • The Importance Of Conductivity In Polymers

    A polymer is a large molecule which is formed by repeated linkage of small molecule called monomers. Conducting polymer have been the subjects for many decades as possible synthetic metals. Many of these polymer, especially those with a conjugated pi-bond system ,often yield higher conductivity once having undergone the doping process. Polymers are typically insulators due to their very high resistivity .Insulators have tightly bound electrons so that nearly no electron flow occurs ,and they…
