Thorough understanding of the influence of anions on the structure and properties of the conducting polymers would, therefore, enable the synthesis of conducting polymers of specific predefined properties.

The small size of colloidal particles prevent from the precipitation of conducting polymer particles and lead to better dispersion of nanocomposites in matrix of poly (vinyl acetate) binder so the paint is homogeneous and anticorrosion properties of coating increased.
Although the Tafel extrapolation method is usually insufficient for understanding the protective properties of electroactive conducting polymer coatings, this method may be used to compare corrosion performances of various polymer coating types [33].
This behavior in conducting polymers (CPs) is caused by the high conductivity Islands resulted from localized doping surrounded by less doped insulating regions.
The active components are nanothreads of zinc oxide on a thin layer of polydiethylflourene (PFO), a conducting polymer. But the paper has first been coated with a thin, water-repellent, protective and levelling layer of cyclotene, a resin.
When molecules are dropped onto the crystal, the crystal provokes a chemical reaction and creates a conducting polymer. By using a scanning probe microscope that enabled them to see surfaces with atomic resolution, the researchers discovered that the polymers had imitated the order of the crystal surface.
Recently, conducting polymer/metal oxide nanoparticle composites have been considered as a new class of materials due to their improved properties when compared with those of pure conducting polymer and metal oxide.
Compared to metallized fabrics, the absorption component of a conducting polymer fabric represents a higher contribution to the overall shielding.
In a new investigation, biomedical engineers have chemically modified a conducting polymer so that it can coax nerve tissue to grow.
The polymer Yang has developed is a two-strand conducting polymer that can emulate the most important functions of chromates.
It was demonstrated [18-21] that the redox properties of the conducting polymer depend strongly on the nature of the anion incorporated during synthesis.
