A study on the polymerization of polyethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) and the carbonization process of a separator was carred out in order to apply conductive polymer PEDOT to the winding typed aluminum condenser as a solid electrolyte and a negative electrode. PEDOT was polymerized with ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) as a monomer and ferric-p-toluenesulfonate as an oxidizing agent. The separator of condenser element was carbonized to control its fibrous tissue for the purpose of making it easy to impregnate the PEDOT solution into the microporous etched pit of aluminum foil by preventing separator from concentrating the PEDOT solution on itself. The characteristics of condenser such as capacitance, dissipation factor, equivalent series resistance, and thermal resistance depended on a carbonization temperature and a carbonization time. It was found that a thickness and a density of the used separator were major parameters of carbonization process and the characteristics of condenser were affected by these parameters.
