Poly(p-phenylene) (PPP) films were synthesized by using benzene and fluorosulphonic acid (FSO3H) as a strong acid containing Ag+, Pb2+ and Cu+ ions in methylene chloride (CH,CI,) solution. Addition of Ag+ or Pb2+ ions into the polymerization medium improved the PPP films formation, but Cu+ ion did not have an effect on polymerization. PPP films were characterized by cyclic voltammetry, IR and TGA. Dry conductivities were measured by using four probe technique.
