Conductive Textiles via Vapor-Phase Polymerization of 3,4-Ethylenedioxythiophene

Conductive Textiles via Vapor-Phase Polymerization of 3,4-Ethylenedioxythiophene

We fabricated electrically conductive textiles via vapor-phase polymerization of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) layers on cotton, cotton/poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), cotton/Lycra, and PET fabrics. We then measured the electrical resistivity values of such PEDOT-coated textiles and analyzed the effect of water treatment on the electrical resistivity. Additionally, we tested the change in the electrical resistance of the conductive textiles under cyclic stretching and relaxation. Last, we characterized the uniformity and morphology of the conductive layer formed on the fabrics using scanning electron microscopy and electron-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy.
