Electrical Conducting Molecular Crystals in a Polymer Matrix
Films containing only 0.4 – 0.8 % of a radical salt based on tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) are transparent and permanently antistatic. The charge-transfer complexes form a three-dimensional network. The specific conductivity is 10−6 to 10−7 S/cm. The formation of the conducting network depends on the viscosity, temperature, solvent and evaporation speed.
