Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers

Oxford University Press

Semi-empirical π‐electron theories of conjugated polymers are introduced, starting from the fundamentals of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation and sp-hybridization. The models described include the simplest non-interacting (Hückel) theory, models of electron-nuclear coupling (i.e., the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger and Peierls models), and models of interacting electrons (i.e., the Pariser-Parr-Pople model). All of them are introduced in the second quantized notation.There is also a brief discussion of the role of spatial and electron-hole symmetries, and quantum numbers in classifying the electronic states of π‐ conjugated polymers.

Keywords:   Born-Oppenheimer approximation, sp-hybridization, second quantization, Hückel model, su-Schrieffer-Heeger model, Peierls model, Pariser-Parr-Pople model, symmetries, quantum numbers
