    • Abstract

       

      New types of defects such as solitons, polarons and bipolarons in conducting polymers have been discussed in this article. In the light of recent experimental results, the bipolaronic model of conduction has been re-examined. It is shown that more elaborate experiments are essential to confirm the hypothesis of charge transport via bipolarons in these newer synthetic metals.
