Abstract

A process for the preparation of conductive polymers, especially positively charging polymers, by uniaxially stretching in the form of a film, a polymer, like poly paraphenylene vinylene (PPV), reference for example, Polymer Preprints, Division Of Polymer Chemistry, ACS, Volume 30, #1, pages 154 to 156, (1989). Conductivity of the polymer is believed to be created by the alignment in the polymer of conjugated sites. A uniaxial web stretching device can be selected for the aforementioned process. The polymers which result exhibit it is believed high electrochemical activity, especially after chemical doping with for example, AsF5 and SbF5; and such polymers can be utilized as carrier coatings for xerographic imaging and printing methods, especially hybrid scavengless methods wherein conductive magnetic brush is selected. The coated carriers which can be prepared by solution or dry coating methods contain known carrier cores such as steel, iron, and ferrites.
