Abstract : The structure of certain semiconducting polymers was studied by means of conductivity and infrared measurements. The polymers are formed by the reaction of aromatic hydrocarbons with acids or acid anhydrides. The conductivities of various alternate polymers indicate that it can be concluded that the polymers prepared using phthalic anhydride, are not poly(aromatic) ketones, but possibly quinoid or lactone structures. A variety of new polymers showing electronic semiconduction were prepared using either phenanthrene or anthracene and arious organic acidic compou ds such as acids, acid anhydrides, acid chlorides, and imides.
