Title: Impact of the synthesis method on the solid-state charge transport of radical polymers

Abstract

Though poly(2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyloxy methacrylate) (PTMA) was reported to be conductive, careful measurements indicate its insulating nature regardless of synthesis method, which have implication for its application in organic electronics.
