Abstract : This review article summarizes the insulator to metal transition that occurs in polyaniline, polypyrrole, and polyacetylene with increasing order. Based on dc and microwave frequency conductivity and optical studies, an inhomogeneous disorder induced insulator-metal transition is proposed to occur.
