Abstract
We discuss possible mechanisms of doping induced volume change in conjugated polymers with reference to the case of poly(3,4- ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT). This material has been studied in two forms; as well ordered paracrystalline material and in the form of a water swollen conducting hydrogel. Structural and electrochemical studies are discussed.
