    Abstract

    A synthetic chemical strategy aimed at altering the cross-linking density of the electropolymerized conjugated polymer polypyrrole has been devised and implemented. The actuation performance of the synthesized material was assessed using a new type of apparatus capable of making rapid, non-contact dynamic measurements. The affect of cross-linking on the actuation performance of polypyrroles, was investigated.
