Abstract: Plasma polymer film has been one of the most widely studied materials due to its outstanding and promising mechanical and physicochemical properties. Present review confined about synthesis of conjugated polymer through plasma polymerization process. The merits and demerits associated with plasma polymerization are discussed in comparison with chemical rout polymerization and electrochemical polymerization various aspects regarding the chemical and physical properties of plasma polymer film is different from conventional methods of synthesis of conjugated polymer. Plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) is also reviewed within their respective sections. This different structure of plasma polymerized thin film leads to potential application in various fields. The plasma polymerization processes of conjugated polymers are strappingly affected by various parameters such as pressure, separation between two electrodes. These parameters discussed on the basis of Pascen’s law. This review shortlisted and discuss some advantages and disadvantages associated with plasma polymerization.
