1. “The concept of valence and conduction band broadening based on alternating electron rich and poor moieties in conjugated polymers was introduced in 1993 by Havinga et al. With the ability to obtain energy gaps as narrow as 0.5 eV, a new dimension was added to the notion of band gap engineering and the "donor-acceptor" theory on a macromolecular level was born. In spite of the considerable impact of this discovery for device applications such as field-effect transistors, light emitting diodes and photovoltaics, only recently has the use of donor-acceptor based conducting polymers been directed to electrochromic polymers (ECPs).” [Beaujuge, Reynolds and Ellinger, US Patent 8,404,800 (3/26,2013)]
