'A comprehensive review of the current state of the theoretical development in this important area of potential application of conducting polymers, and is very timely...The editor-author is to be congratulated for his marathon efforts and the production of a significant contribution to the literature.' -TRIP This three-part series provides undergraduate and graduate students in electrochemistry and materials science with a broad understanding of electroactive polymers. In Part I, renowned scientists examine the fundamental principles underlying electrochemical behavior of electroactive polymer materials. Contributors focus on the fundamentals of charge percolation and conductivity behavior associated with the membrane properties of electroactive polymer films. Part I also includes coverage of the phenomenon of heterogeneous redox catalysis at electroactive polymer modified electrodes.
