Mechanical Properties of Electrochemically Prepared Polypyrrole Films

by A. F. Diaz, B. Hall
The mechanical and conducting properties of free-standing films of polypyrrole toluenesulfonate depend on the preparation conditions. Films prepared in aqueous ethylene glycol solvent mixtures show a variation of two orders of magnitude in the conductivity and of a factor of three in the tensile strength.
