ELECTRONIC AND ELECTRICAL INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS OF ADVANCED CONDUCTING POLYMERS

Objective


Conjugated polymers obtained by this process are stable for long time periods without special precautions.

Polypyrrole can be obtained with an electrochemical capacity greater than 100Ah/kg and can be used in batteries.

Polypyrrole can be used instead of carbon black for building supercapacitors.

Polyaniline and polythiophenes can be used instead of carbon black for the manufacturing of semi conductive shields.
Advanced conducting polymers which are processable and thermally stable with good ageing properties will be synthesized. Their use will be assessed for two industrial applications :
-cable technology : production of semi-conductive jackets for high-voltage energy transportation : Alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC).
-Microelectronics : manufacturing of supercapacitors and energy microstorage devices.
