Oxidative polymerization of pyrrole derivatives in a microgravity environment was carried out using the JAMIC (Japan Microgravity Center) drop shaft where 10-seconds microgravity condition is available. The structural and electronic properties of the polymers were compared with those obtained in 1G.
