|Title:||Ab initio study of the electronic structure and conduction properties of polyarenemethides: A class of soliton supporting polymers|
|Authors:||Bakhshi, A K|
|Abstract:||Electronic structures and conduction properties of four members of the family of polyareneme thides have been studied using ab initio Hartree-Fock crystal orbital method. The calculated values of the band gap for all the polyarenemethides are found to be smaller than that of trans-polyacetylene (PA). All the polyarenemethides are predicted to be less insulating than trans-PA in forming highly conducting materials on doping with the electron acceptors.|
