Abstract

We report on the chemical aspects of a novel group of materials containing conductive polymers. The experimental system involved the doping of poly(p-phenylene) (PPP) with potassium metal in the presence of the poly(crown ether), threo-2,5-poly(tetrahydrofurandiyl) (PCE), in toluene solution. We identified the possibility of solvating conductive polymers by polymer/polymer coulombic complexation. The formation of polyelectrolytic complexes between polyanions and polycations is thermodynamically feasible.
