Abstract:

Conductive polymers (CPs), including poly (3, 4-ethylene ioxythiophene) (PEDOT): poly (styrene sulphonate) (PSS) in particular, have recently attracted a significant amount of interest from researchers for usage in bioelectronics applications. The in-situ polymerization technique was utilized to prepare the pure PEDOT: PSS that could be manufactured. In order to analyze the chemical structure and optical characteristics of the newly synthesized materials, several spectroscopic techniques such as X-ray diffractometry, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy was utilized. In addition, scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were utilized to investigate the material's morphological characteristics. The article has studied the sample's electrical properties and other characteristics, and the applications of PEDOT: PSS in several areas have been discussed.
