Conductive polymers show significant promise for future usesthe potential application list keeps growingResearchers working with conductive polymers would find this an excellent text to keep up-to-date on the most recent advances in conductive polymer technology.
Building on the foundation created by the standard-setting first edition, this second edition provides a thorough introduction to conductive electoactive polymers. It examines several important electroactive polymer groups and discusses ways in which these materials can be integrated into structures. The book closely ties applications to material properties and details the chemistry behind the properties induced in the materials. It contains expanded coverage of the synthesis and structure of the important polymer groups, features a new chapter devoted to processing and device fabrication, and includes coverage of cutting-edge technology and technological advances in this field.
