Abstract. In this mini-review, we address the importance of specific interactions in core-shell structures composed with intrinsically conducting polymers (ICPs) as a shell and various nanoparticles used as a core. These interactions that can appear during the polymerization process of corresponding monomers or in the course of subsequent treatments of already formed core-shell nanocomposites play a crucial role in determining their structure and unique physical properties. They also lead to significant differences in molecular weight, structure, oxidation state, electronic properties, thermal stability and other properties of synthesized ICP shells in comparison to their pure state when polymerization proceeds without a template. This work was reported on the joint Ukrainian-Japan workshop in the V. Lashkaryov Institute of Semiconductor Physics, NAS of Ukraine on 23rd December 2018.

Keywords: intrinsically conducting polymers, (nano)composites, core-shell, interactions, molecular characteristics, structure, morphology, properties.
