Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to obtain a conductive polymer by using a fluorescence comonomer which is an insulator. In this study, methyl ethyl ketone formaldehyde resin (MEKFR) modified with carbazole-9-carbonyl chloride (CzCI) was synthesised via hydroxyl groups of MEKFR. Electrochemical polymerisation of Cz-MEKFR comonomer was carried out potentiostatically and a green, conductive polymer P(Cz-MEKFR) was obtained. The advantages of obtaining alternative structure of P(Cz-MEKFR) to the random copolymer were reported.
