Write-up: Features
• Summarises the latest information on PEDOT
• Offers information on how to solve technical problems using this conductive polymer
• Covers information generated by universities and academic research as well as by industrial scientists, giving the full picture of the experimental and the practical
• Focuses exclusively on PEDOT
• Describes technical applications of PEDOT

The unparalleled large-scale commercial application of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), otherwise known as PEDOT, continues to fuel a need for literature about it that is concise, easily available, but sufficiently comprehensive. Designed to meet the requirements of readers from different areas of expertise and experience with the substance, PEDOT: Principles and Applications of an Intrinsically Conductive Polymer provides a comprehensive overview of chemical, physical and technical information about this preeminent and most forwardly developed electrically conductive polymer.
This handbook provides basic knowledge and explores technical applications, based on information generated by universities and academic research, as well as by industrial scientists. Available in various formulations and conductivities, this versatile PEDOT can be adapted for the needs and specific industrial applications of its different users.
This book:
• Begins with a brief history of conducting polymers and polythiophenes
• Describes the invention of PEDOT and its commercial outgrowth, PEDOT:PSS
• Emphasises key technical and commercial aspects and usage of PEDOT and how they have stimulated scientific research in a wide range of fields
• Explains the chemical and physical background for PEDOT in terms of its primary use and incorporation in products including cellular phones and flat panel displays
Valuable for readers at any level of familiarity with PEDOT, this one-stop compilation of information offers specialists several unpublished results from the authors’ celebrated work, as well as often overlooked information from patents. Balancing sufficient detail and references for further study, this book is a powerful tool for anyone working in the field.
