Paper Abstract

Electroactive polymers constitute a great family of very different compounds, with diverse properties and applications. They have in common that the modulation of EAP properties is a key requisites in order to make use of these materials for technological purposes. In this contribution we outline some applications of materials based in polypyrrole and describe methods to characterize the polymerization process and the properties of the films. A selected property can be then optimized in order to attain a tailored material for a defined application.
