The process of combining natural cellulosic fibers with conducting polymers (CPs) is being pursued by scientist and researchers for their achievable synergistic electrical and biofriendly properties. CPs can be deposited on to a wide variety of cellulosic substrate and fibers, thus achieving good interactions between them. Various methods of deposition include in situ polymerization, physical coating, multilayering, and printing. Such materials are used for achieving more sustainable and low-cost CP-based applications.
