The thermophysical properties of cationic conjugated polymers and oligomers are characterized, and the extent of hygroscopicity is explored. The rate of moisture absorption, water affinity, and water content are important properties to consider for incorporation into optoelectronic devices. Guidelines for controlling water absorption via molecular design are also provided.
