Organic materials, such as organic polymers, are generally regarded as good insulators. Recent developments in materials science and technology, however, have brought about the discovery of organic conductors such as organic metals and even superconductors. The properties of rather simple materials such as ordinary metals and superconductors have been described well by the theories of solid-state physics. To treat the more complicated organic conductors on this same basis, the terms of solid-state physics and organic molecular materials need to be bridged.
