Fluorine-doped polypyrroles, combining the electrical properties of conducting polymers and the unique surface properties of fluorinated molecules, have been obtained by an easy and straightforward method. Using the fluorine co-dopant, fabrics with hydrophobic, fluorinated surfaces have been created, and a selective deposition of polypyrroles into textiles (see Figure) has also been achieved.
