The In Situ Polymerization of EDOT to PEDOT

In situ poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) was the rst example for PEDOT as synthesized under lm-forming conditions.1 Up to now in situ PEDOT is the polythiophene with the highest achievable electric conductivity, although PEDOT:PSS (poly(styrenesulfonate)) is catching up. That is why in situ PEDOT is of great practical and commercial value. These industrial aspects are described in Chapters 10 and 11.
