Abstract / Full Text

Production techniques, structure, and electrochemical properties of conducting thin-film materials consisting of a polyethylene (PE) substrate covered with a polyacetylene (PA) layer are studied. Properties of a free PA film are determined by the catalyst used in its synthesis. Properties of composites depend on the optimum selection of the PA/PE ratio (by weight), the catalyst used for polymerizing PA, and the PE structure. The capacity of composites is higher than that of free PA films. This points to the possible role of an increased transport of lithium cations at interfaces.
