    • Abstract


      Heat treatment of poly nickel phthalocyanine leads to a charge transfer and hence there is an improvement in conductivity by 5 orders of magnitude. DC electrical conductivity measurements have been carried out in the heat-treated samples in the temperature range 270 K-10 K. Mott’s variable range hopping conduction in one dimension is observed in the temperature range 270K-77K and the conductivity remains constant in the temperature range 77K-10K.
