Abstract : The authors have reviewed the basic theories of superconductivity and have evaluated Little's proposed organic superconducting polyene from a synthetic and technical point of view. In addition, they have discussed the conductivity of charge transfer type polymers and conformational effects on conductivity. Various biopolymers and vinyl polymers were synthesized with side chains capable of forming charge transfer complexes. A 1-nylon type intramolecule was developed as a charge transfer copolymer.
