In the area of conductive polymers efforts are being concentrated on conductive doped polyacetylenes, which up to now have not exhibited sufficient stability in the normal environment. One of new systems consists of an inert polymer doped with a crystalline conductive network of strong charge transfer complexes, which exhibit high volume and surface conductivity at a very low concentration of dopants (0.5 wt. per cent). These materials preserve all the typical properties of polymeric films, plus high conductivity. Organic materials containing appropriately substituted conjugation systems exhibit strongly non-linear optical polarization responses and thus can be used in optoelectronics. Current efforts are directed towards research in the field of polymeric non-linear materials, e.g. quasi-crystals con­sisting of spiropyrane compounds, molecularly doped polymeric liquid crystals, etc. Some remarks on the successes and pitfalls encountered in the preparation and use of these polymers are discussed.
