Abstract: Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) incorporated with -conjugated polymers, have proven to be an effective approach in the production of advanced thermoelectric composites. However, the studied polymers are mainly limited to scanty conventional conductive polymers, and their performances still remain to be improved. Herein, a new planar moiety of platinum acetylide in the -conjugated system is introduced to enhance the intermolecular interaction with the SWCNTs via - and d- interactions, which is crucial in regulating the thermoelectric performances of SWCNT-based composites. As expected, SWCNT composites based on the platinum acetylides embedded polymers displayed a higher power factor (130.7 +/- 3.8 Wm(-1)K(-2)) at ambient temperature than those without platinum acetylides (59.5 +/- 0.7 Wm(-1)K(-2)) under the same conditions. Moreover, the strong interactions between the platinum acetylide-based polymers and the SWCNTs are confirmed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) measurements.
