A new approach to the formation of electrically conducting polymeric materials has been formulated. It is based on the phenomenon of pressure‐induced injection of charge carriers from conducting particles into dielectric media. This process has been recently discovered by the authors. In practice, this approach can be accomplished by synthesizing macromolecules of proper dielectric next to the surface of a conducting filler. The experiments supporting the validity of the main assumptions are used to provide a background for the “polymerization filling” concept. The application of this principle makes it possible to obtain systems with larger specific conductivity than with the usual “blended” composites.
