It appears, however, that the lateral growth of conducting polymers to form an anode bed requires carefully controlled electrochemical oxidation of the monomer in the concrete matrix.

This feasibility study on the nondestructive incorporation of a conducting polymer anode bed into bridge deck concrete showed that incorporating polymers into concrete by both chemical and electrochemical approaches is feasible. It appears, however, that the lateral growth of conducting polymers to form an anode bed requires carefully controlled electrochemical oxidation of the monomer in the concrete matrix.
