OBJECTIVE:
• To enable the students to understand the basic concepts on conducting polymers, conduction mechanism, various methods of synthesis and characterization of conducting polymers and their applications

UNIT I

ELECTROCHEMISTRY OF CONDUCTING POLYMERS

8

Electrochemistry of electronically conducting polymers-source of electronic conduction in polymers – solitons, polarons and bipolarons – semiconductors and conducting polymers.

UNIT II

GENERAL SYNTHESIS OF CONDUCTING POLYMERS

9

Synthesis of conducting polymers – chemical, electrochemical and enzymatic methods – doping – general considerations – measurement of conductivity – van der Pauw technique – factors affecting conductivity.


UNIT III

CHARACTERIZATION OF CONDUCTING POLYMERS

8

Characterization of conducting polymers – electro analytical techniques – cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry and chronocoulometry, spectral methods - use of UV-vis, Raman, XRD and NMR.

UNIT IV

SYNTHESIS, PROCESSABILITY AND APPLICATIONS

10

Synthesis, processability and applications of acetylene, aniline, pyrrole, thiophene and para – phenylene based conducting polymers.

UNIT V

APPLICATIONS OF CONDUCTING POLYMERS

10

Conducting polymers in microelectronics – corrosion and ESD protection, EMI shielding and lithography. LED- rechargeable batteries – artificial muscles - electrochromic devices– sensor devices–conductive composites.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: They should be able to:
• Draw the molecular structure of common conducting polymer monomers/polymers
• Know basic synthetic methods
• Understand the concept of doping and dedoping
• Be familiar with common applications of conducting polymers and the science behind them
• Be familiar with the history of the field, some leading scientists and classical references, and some current research activities in the field
