ABSTRACT:  Crystallization of the conductive charge transfer (CT) complex forming a reticulated, dendritic morphology within a polymeric matrix during film casting is a new way for obtaining conductive polymers. Subject to proper crystallization conditions during film casting one can obtain materials with high conductivity at a concentration of additives as low as 1 wt%. This paper describes a model concept allowing for the selection of proper crystallization conditions leading to suitable morphology of crystalline additives. It is based on an analysis of morphologies from evaporating solutions containing polymer and low molecular weight CT complexes-forming additives. Considerations are based on the results obtained for TTF–TCNQ CT complexes crystallized in polycarbonate and polystyrene matrices.
