Abstract

Helical conformations of polymers occur due to a variety of factors, some of which are electronic in origin. We briefly review the situations in which there is an electronic driving force towards a helix including a case that might be called a helical Peierls distortion. Energetics and geometries of helical conformations of polythiophene and polypyrrole are also analyzed.
