Abstract: An oxidative chemical vapor phase polymerization process is applied to coat flexible polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fabrics with a uniform poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) film. This vapor phase polymerization method is a solventfree technique, which could yield a low resistance in the PEDOT-coated PET fabric. The resistance as low as 52Ωsquare-1 is achieved. The polymerization conditions, such as the concentration of oxidant, reaction time, and temperature, have been systematically investigated. The coated fabric samples exhibit an increase in temperature when subjected to a fixed DC voltage. This result indicates a potential application of these PEDOT-coated fabrics as electric heating materials.
