Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers

William Barford

Oxford University Press

As an introduction to conjugated polymers, this chapter gives a brief summary of recent experimental and theoretical advances. It outlines the key challenges to understanding the electronic properties of conjugated polymers, namely electron-electron interactions, electron-nuclear coupling, and disorder. All of these effects are enhanced in one-dimensional systems.The chapter then gives a review of the rest of the book, emphazing the point that semi-empirical models of π‐conjugated systems give valuable insights to, as well as accurate predictions of, their electronic properties.

Keywords:   conjugated polymers, electronic properties
