Synthetic polymers, whose long molecules string together hundreds of identical structural units, have been insulating electric equipment since the turn of the century. The later fabrication, in the 1970s, of polymers with usefully high electrical conductivity stirred intense interest in the research and development community. By now these polymers are showing commercial promise in such areas as power equipment, batteries, microelectronics, shielding against electromagnetic interference, and coatings, not to mention micromachines and adhesives
