Many significant fundamental concepts and practical applications have developed since the publication of the best-selling second edition of the Handbook of Conducting Polymers. Now divided into two books, the third edition continues to retain the excellent expertise of the editors and world-renowned contributors while providing superior coverage of the recent advances in polymer processing and applications, particularly in conductivity, nonlinear optics, and light emission.

Conjugated Polymers: Processing and Applications, the second of two volumes, picks up where the first volume ended. It concentrates on the numerous processing methods for conducting polymers and their integration into various devices and applications. The book first examines coating, printing, and spinning methods for complex patterned films and fibers. It then shows how conducting and semiconducting polymers are applied in many devices, such as light-emitting displays, solar cells, field effect transistors, electrochromic panels, charge storage devices, biosensors, and actuators.

Following the essential scientific information found in the first installment, this book explores the ways in which polymers are useful in industrial and commercial applications. These application developments have already led to marketable products.


"Material scientists, chemists, or educators, working in the field of conducting polymers will find these books to be a very informative, convenient reference source that will be useful in your research."

– In IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, May/June 2008, Vol. 24, No. 3

"Rich and lavish praises have been showered on the previous editions and the present edition shall continue as fascinatingly splendid and authoritative volumes rich with data, information, numerous equations, tables, and both black and white and color figures, interpretation, and inspiration. A beautifully presented handbook and a pleasure to read and consult on the most active and visible researches in the field of conjugated and conducting polymers."
