Abstract: Resistivities of thin polymer films increase abruptly with decreasing thickness, although the corresponding decline in resistance plateaus below a certain thickness. One can jump to the incorrect conclusion that quantum confinement and surface scattering are responsible for this behaviour, and we highlight the pitfalls of committing such an error. © 2012, Royal Society of Chemistry
