▪ Abstract 

Charge transport at conjugated polymer interfaces with metals and inorganic semiconductors is reviewed. Experiments on the equilibrium properties and DC current-voltage behavior of four specific classes of interfaces—metal–doped conjugated polymer, inorganic semiconductor–doped conjugated polymer, metal–intrinsic conjugated polymer, and metal–intrinsic conjugated polymer/electrolyte—are discussed. To facilitate this discussion, classic models of equilibration at ideal interfaces between electronic conductors and free-electron transport are introduced and their limitations discussed. Particular emphasis is placed on the charge distributions and interfacial potential profiles expected at various types of electroactive interfaces.
