Description

PEDOT is currently the most widely used polymeric material in research and development. Over the past ten years, PEDOT has been investigated for potential organic thermoelectric applications, because of their superior thermoelectric and mechanical properties in comparison to other conductive polymers. However, there are many remaining challenges to be solved prior to their translation to key technologies.

Advanced PEDOT Thermoelectric Materials summarizes the current progress and challenges of PEDOT thermoelectric materials and clarifies directions of future development. It provides a comprehensive overview of chemical, physical, and technical information about this organic thermoelectric polymer. The authors also address details of the theoretical basis of PEDOT including preparation, characterization, and its development as high-performance thermoelectric PEDOT materials.

This book can help researchers who are working on PEDOT materials to prepare, characterize, analyze, test and apply, while contributing to the future development and application of organic thermoelectric materials.
