Conductive polymers are a class of unique polymers which possess electronic conductivity similar to those of metals and inorganic semiconductors. These conductive polymers can be synthesized by chemical oxidation and by electrochemical polymerization depending upon the reagent. The properties that make conductive polymers attractive include electrical conductivity, high-performance, and capacity to exchange ions, capability to store charge, and absorb electromagnetic radiation. The conducting properties for a polymer can be accomplished by organic synthesis method. Polypyrrole, polyacetylene and polyaniline are the basic polymers, widely used in various applications. Repeated oxidation and reduction of polymeric back bone constitutes the principle of to detect the different gaseous and polymer rechargeable batteries.
