PTh is one of the most studied conducting polymers
due to its high conductivity and excellent environmental stability.
Polyaniline (PANI) is presently considered to be one of the promising conducting polymers
(CP) that has been found to have a wide range of applications including biosensors owing to its lowcost, electrical properties etc.
Called electrically conducting polymers
or synthetic metals .
It is also used for study of reversibility of redox couples in the conducting polymer
systems and degradation studies .

Proton conducting polymer
electrolyte based on plasticized chitosan-PEO blend and application in electrochemical devices.
It should be noted that with increasing thickness of the conducting polymer
coating the catalytic activity of the electrode towards 2-PrOH electro-oxidation decreases which is probably due to the blocking of active sites of the electrode surface by thick deposited polymer layer.

microrods for selective protein recognition.
Intrinsic conducting polymers
with conjugated double bonds have been under intense investigation for more than twenty years already.
To utilize the hydrogen in an FC, researchers said they coated a prototype FC with a conducting polymer
that permits hydrogen diffusion while blocking larger molecules and cleansing the FC of "excreted metabolites.
