Because of their typically intractable nature, conducting polymers as a class of materials have proved particularly difficult to characterize by the conventional techniques of polymer analysis. We present here examples of the application of a powerful new tool, cross-polarization magic angle spinning (CPMAS) 13C NMR spectroscopy, to the investigation of the structure and reactions of the conducting polymers polyacetylene and polypyrrole.
