Previously, we presented a model for ion transport in conjugated polymers during electrochemical reduction. In this paper, we will present a more advanced model that includes hole transport, which was neglected in the first-cut model. This addition takes into account the interactions between holes and cations during transport. The result is that the front between oxidized and reduced material now propagates with constant velocity, instead of slowing down over time. Also, an electrolyte layer has been added to the model, and as a result the ion concentration behind the phase front is more accurately predicted.
