UNIT II

GENERAL SYNTHESIS OF CONDUCTING POLYERS

9

Synthesis of conducting polymers - Chemical synthesis - electrochemical synthesis -template synthesis - precursor synthesis - soluble polymers (colloids and dispersions) -advantages and disadvantages of various synthesis methods.


UNIT III

CHARACTERIZATION OF CONDUCTING POLYMERS

9

Characterization methods - elemental analysis for dopants - IR - UV (electro chemical) scanning electro microscopy (SEM) - electro chemical characterization - cyclic voltometry- electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) - probe beam deflection (PBD) -Langmuir - blodgett technique.

UNIT IV

SYNTHESIS, PROCESSABILITY AND APPLICATIONS

9

Applications tested - rechargeable batteries, lights emitting diodes - gas sensors - bio sensors - photo voltaic energy devices - micro electronics (PCB fabrications) electro catalysis - applications - proposed - antistatic coatings - electro chem. Mechanical devices - super capacitors

UNIT V

APPLICATIONS OF CONDUCTING POLYMERS

9

Recent trends in conducting polymers - functionalised conducting polymers (second generation polymers) - super conductors (inorganic - organic hybrid structures) - conducting polymers based on nano composites.
