General description

Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) is an organic semiconductor prepared by doping cationic poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) and poly(4-styrenesulfonate) anion. Its high electrical conductivity and good oxidation resistance make it suitable for electromagnetic shielding and noise suppression. PEDOT:PSS based polymeric films have a high transparency throughout the visible light spectrum and even in near IR and near UV regions, with virtually 100% absorption from 900-2000 nm.[1] PEDOT provides the conduction properties and PSS forms a hydrated colloidal solution.[2]

Application

Electrical conductivity measurements herewith reported were on a film deposited by spin-coating on a clean glass, then dried (130 °C for 15 minutes on a hotplate). The layer thickness was determined by scratching the layer and measuring the profile/height of the scratch by a stylus profilometer. Electrodes for the measurement were by evaporating metal contacts (four-point probes).
PEDOT:PSS is an intrinsically conductive polymer (ICP) that can be coated on various substrates and nanostructures like fullerenes (C60) to form composites with high electrochemical properties for applications like low-cost printed electronics, optoelectronics, and polymeric solar cells. It can be used as a conductive hydrogel with polyethylene glycol-diacrylate (PEG-DA) for potential applications in tissue engineering. PEDOT:PSS also finds use in other organic electronic applications like organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) and dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs).[2][3][4][5][6][7]
