Advanced PEDOT Thermoelectric Materials Excerpt :
PEDOT is currently the most widely used polymeric material in research and development. Over the past 10 years, PEDOT has been investigated for potential organic thermoelectric applications because of its superior thermoelectric and mechanical properties compared with other conductive polymers. However, many challenges remain to be solved before it is translated into key technologies. Advanced PEDOT Thermoelectric Materials summarizes current progress and the challenges of PEDOT thermoelectric materials, while clarifying directions for future development. This book provides a comprehensive overview of chemical, physical, and technical information about this organic thermoelectric polymer. The authors also give details about the theoretical basis of PEDOT, including preparation and characterization, and its development as a high-performance thermoelectric material. Provides an overview of techniques to optimize the thermoelectric performance of PEDOT materials. Introduces the fundamentals of PEDOT, including material synthesis, characterization, preparation, thermal transport, and more. Discusses emerging applications in thermoelectric devices and future directions.
