Core and valence levels of various sulphur-containing conducting polymers, such as poly-p-phenylene sulphide, polybenzothiophene, polythiophene, polythieno[2,3-b]thiophene and polydithienothiophene, have been investigated by X-ray photoeletron spectroscopy (XPS). Their electronic structures (atomic charge, band gap and the nature of the highest occupied band) are deduced from XPS spectra and compared to Valence Effective Hamiltonian calculations.
