Abstract

The energy-band structure of two copolymer groups consisting of various compositions of polyacetylene-poly(vinyl fluoride) and polyacetylene-polytetrafluoroethylene are calculated for the first time using an ab initio SCF LCAO technique. Special attention is devoted to new states appearing in the energy gaps of the preceding polymers. Their identification and implications for industrial purposes are discussed in detail.
