Advances and Applications of Inherently Conductive Polymer Technologies Based on Poly(3,4-Ethylenedioxythiophene)

Presented by Dr. Jill Simpson, H.C. Starch, Inc.

The development and recent advances in inherently conducting polymer (ICP) chemistry based on poly (3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDT) are discussed. PEDT-based coatings can be deposited on rigid or flexible substrates via batch or roll to roll coating processes. Properties and formulations are highlighted in some relevant applications such as highly transparent conductive coatings for ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection and transparent circuitry for inorganic electroluminescent devices. Final coating properties are controlled and adjusted by careful formulation of coating ingredients, the guidelines for which will be discussed in this paper.
