PEDOT

11.08.08

Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) or PEDOT (or sometimes PEDT) is a conducting polymer based on 3,4-ethylenedioxylthiophene or EDOT monomer. Advantages of this polymer are optical transparency in its conducting state, high stability and moderate band gap and low redox potential. A large disadvantage is poor solubility which is partly circumvented in the PEDOT:PSS composite, and the PEDOT-TMA material. (Note: Pedot is a transparent conductor. These conductors are used for LCDs and solar cells, among others.)

  • Photovoltaic Polymers

    A polymer photovoltaic or solar cell consists of an active layer that traditionally is composed of a soluble polymer material mixed with, for instance, a soluble fullerene derivative. The active layer is sandwiched between two electrodes and barrier…

  • Polythiophenes (PT)

    Polythiophenes result from the polymerization of thiophenes, a sulfur heterocycle, that can become conducting when electrons are added or removed from the conjugated pi-orbitals via doping. A number of applications have been proposed for conductin…
