The increase in electrical properties is due to an increase in delocalization of [pi]-electrons.
Conjugated polymers, with strong delocalization of electrons contributing to the large and fast optical response, have provoked increasing interest in their great potential for high technology applications [3, 4].
It can be easily supposed that the sulfonate group is in a resonant state between the S-O and S=O groups, causing the delocalization of the negative charge.
The rigidity of poly(cyanate epoxy) is probably responsible for the delocalization of the movement.
Eventually, the probabilistic character of the shrinking of delocalization range, emphasized in [9], guarantees the probabilistic nature of the origin of space-time and its curvature.
Also, there had to be molecular rearrangement on heating, which made the molecular conformation favorable for electron delocalization (20).
In recent times, there has been an enormous interest in organic materials possessing strong [pi]-electron delocalization which determines the strength of third-order nonlinearity.
This is presumably due to the electron delocalization of the chromophoric group resulted from grafting benzophenone chromophoric group to the main polymer chains, and so the extended chromophoric conjugation contributed to bathochromic and hyperchromic shifts in UV-VIS absorption [14].
These polymers have a conjugated structure; therefore, delocalization of electrons takes place along the polymer backbone.
Because of their unique electrical and optical properties based on the substantial [pi]-electron delocalization along their backbones, they have attracted much interest over the past 25 years for potential use in information storage, electrochromic devices, sensors, light-emitting diodes, rechargeable batteries, etc [2].
Appears here once more the importance of the delocalization range [DELTA]x: in eq (4,14) [DELTA][x.
