12Electrically Conductive Coatings

In this chapter we discuss a number of aspects of electrically conductive coatings. This type of coatings can be based on either a conductive polymer matrix or on conductive particles in a nonconductive matrix, the latter often being addressed as conductive composite coatings. The former category includes conjugated polymers, such as polypyrrole, and charge transfer compounds, such as TCNQ, while for the latter category a whole gamut of particles can be used, ranging from metals via oxides to carbon‐based materials such as carbon black (CB), carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and graphene. We first briefly describe some typical applications, then address the relevant measuring techniques, and thereafter discuss conductive ...
